From streets for cars to streets for all, the city of Lviv has spearheaded an unprecedented transformation of its public realm and sustainable mobility in the last decade. The capital city of Ukraine is also the honorable mention recipient of the 2021 Sustainable Transport Award, recognized for its improvements in public transport and pedestrian and cycle infrastructure. Lviv is on its way to meeting an ambitious goal of becoming a “city of short distances”.
This webinar will showcase how public movements for safe walking and cycling conditions can galvanize public support and political will for a shift towards more convenient, equitable and attractive ways of travel. We will hear from Orest Oleksiv, the Head of the Transport Department for the City of Lviv, who will present about the major wins and lessons learned from the city’s actions and give a highlight on the COVID recovery processes.
