Lack of walking makes us fat and isolated. Walking is what our bodies are designed to do and needs to be a daily activity for our overall wellness. Streets need to be designed to promote walking more and driving less. The world can't take much more of our carbon emissions. And too much of our precious public space goes to parking lots and cars.
Over the years, I’ve lived in six different cities, in four different countries, on three continents. A city’s walkability is something I’m always focused on because I’ve always relied on walking and public transportation.
