In 2019, mobility experts Melissa and Chris Bruntlett moved from Vancouver, BC to Delft in the Netherlands to document the benefits that result from a culture that deprioritizes the role of cars in cities. Their brand new book, Curbing Traffic: The Human Case for Fewer Cars in Our Lives, helps decision makers and advocates better understand and communicate the human impacts of low-car cities, including lower anxiety and stress, increased independence, social autonomy, inclusion and improved overall wellbeing. Come hear how centering our cities around people, rather than cars, can result in whole and healthy communities — and the steps that our leaders need to take in order to create places that are age-friendly, connected, trusting, therapeutic, prosperous, resilient and more.
