Modern cities are designed for cars. But the city of Barcelona is testing out an urban design trick that can give cities back to pedestrians.

Watch this amazing video to hear the arguments for both increasing economic activity and decreasing deaths from poor air quality in our city neighbourhoods. Barcelona is leading the way in a new type of zoning in the city centre so that the impact of ┬ácars and their consequences on people’s quality of life is lessened. An excellent video that adds to the evidence that we could be doing better in Liverpool.

The ideas and experiences for redesigning our cities are out there we just need to get them shared more widely in Liverpool.
