About the Webinar
This webinar highlighted Pedestrians First, ITDP’s newest tool for measuring walkability. The tool, which draws on the expertise from our field staff around the world, measures walkability at three scales and can be used in any city in the world. Since walking is a part of almost every trip made, it is necessary to understand how to make our cities more walkable. This webinar featured an overview of the tool, some examples of its indicators in action, and time for questions.
