What are Slow Cities?
John Spacey, updated on August 03, 2016
Slow cities is an urban planning strategy that prioritizes a slow way of life over the demands of faster, cheaper and more convenient. It is associated with sustainability, resilience, culture, neighborhood character and quality of life. A great deal of city space is typically used for roads, highways and parking. Slow city strategies are typically aimed at reallocating some of this land for purposes that are more friendly to community, culture, health and environment such as green space and pedestrian areas.
