This webinar looks at how some cities have been bringing a new gender perspective to mobility planning to influence how transport systems, spaces and cities function. After decades of work around the world, ITDP is now seeing how cities and transportation systems are being designed to be more responsive to many socio-cultural constraints that women face. These new approaches are contributing not only to more inclusive outcomes, but also to more inclusive planning processes that ensure these systems work well for the different groups in cities. We are beginning to see what a city would look like if it were designed for, and by, women.
Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day as we welcome speakers from ITDP Indonesia, ITDP Brazil, and ITDP Africa in a discussion on the various gender-related initiatives they have led over the years, and how they are changing the narrative of gender inclusion in urban spaces and transport.
This event will feature live interpretations in Portuguese and Bahasa Indonesia.
