Debates on the inclusiveness of urban space have been gaining attention with compelling mobility concepts such as the 15mn city. Centred around principles such as accessibility, proximity, or tactical urbanism, these concepts call for an overhaul of how public space is distributed in cities – and could completely reset urban mobility systems. How far are cities from implementing this vision? What are priorities areas that should be addressed to get there? What opportunities can be expected from street redesign and public realm transformations?
