In cities with narrow sidewalks, many public transport stations, and pedestrian areas it is hard to make social distancing possible. What bottlenecks arise in the city? What innovations can be developed to create a safe city for pedestrians? What can we learn from other cities and international perspectives on this? In this Livecast from Pakhuis de Zwijger, we’ll bring together academic experts and urban specialists to find ways towards a new urban blue print.
In collaboration with TU Delft, we recently launched a Social Distancing Dashboard. The dashboard creates city maps that show on a street and neighborhood level if social distance rules can be respected when moving in public space. In this program Arjan van Timmeren (Scientific Director AMS Institute) will talk to different (inter)national guests about the dashboard and designing public space in a 1,5-meter society. We will discuss the changes in metropolitan areas due to the crisis and how science can contribute to innovative solutions. How to design public space to facilitate social distancing?
