Join the NACTO Global Designing Cities team and experts from around the world for an in-depth training on the new Global Street Design Guide, a timely resource that sets a new global paradigm for designing streets and public spaces, while redefining the role of streets in a rapidly urbanizing world.
The Global Street Design Guide broadens how to measure the success of urban streets to include access, safety and mobility for all users, environmental quality, economic benefit, public health and overall quality of life. This training will introduce the material in the Guide and highlight some of the best practices and strategies from the global context. It will also showcase examples of transformational projects from across the globe that have undertaken innovative approaches to encourage streets that prioritize sustainable mobility choices and put people first. A design charette and presentations from global case study contributors will also be part of this session. Case studies will be showcased from Auckland, New Zealand; Sydney, Australia; and Paso Robles, USA.
This training will take place during the NACTO Designing Cities conference, but separate registration is required. The training will run from 8:30-12:30pm; coffee will be provided.
Note – this training is now full.
