Can we re-think urban transport so that walking and cycling become real mobility options that make our cities healthier, safer, and more sociable?
Creating Healthy Places through Active Mobility, a collaborative research project between the Centre for Liveable Cities and Urban Land Institute, explores why and how we should make our urban environment friendlier to walking and cycling. This book, which publishes the findings of that research, discuss infrastructure design and policies of cities such as Amsterdam, Copenhagen, New York, Seoul and Taipei which have adopted active mobility as central to their transformative strategies for building healthy, vibrant, and liveable cities. The book also presents ideas for promoting active mobility based on workshops led by global expert Jan Gehl.

In the space of just four decades, Singapore made the leap from an urban slum to a thriving global city-state. Today, it is a densely populated metropolis, with more than 5 million people inhabiting 710 km2 of land. In most liveable city surveys it is rated one of the few high-density cities that are able to achieve high liveability standards.
Liveable and Sustainable Cities: A Framework examines the roles of Singapore’s pioneering leaders and their innovative policies and enabling processes with a view to discerning the broad principles that contributed to their ability to achieve successful transformation and balanced development. Beyond discussing Singapore’s experience, this book takes a comparative look at the development journeys of selected international cities and concludes that there are broad universal principles of integrated master planning and dynamic urban governance which underlie successful cities.
