A sustainable transformation needs to reduce car dependency. Worldwide
there is a growing awareness about the positive effects of car-free
urban settings on e.g. reduction of air pollution, freeing space for
e.g. green structures and spaces for play.
The project mainly aims to develop new knowledge about how car-free
urban areas (here so-called summer streets) have been developed and
implemented and how this is experienced by users in terms of
environmental opportunities and obstacles to human mobility.
