Diane Smith - 20 Minute Neighbourhoods
These speakers have exciting and innovative ideas about making our city beautiful,. They have some visionary suggestions they will share and will invite discussion and feedback.
Diane Smith is a promoter of the 20 minute neighbourhood, made famous in Paris by mayor Anne Hidalgo, but also of interest to town planners everywhere. The 20 minute neighbourhood is the idea that facilities in cities should be local, no more than a 20minute walk away. This would mean much less car usage if everybody who could was able to walk to their GP surgery, school, place of worship, park, shops and so on.
