EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its November 2018 e-update on the topic of 'Tactical Urbanism'. The theme is described as follows:
Low-cost, temporary interventions in neighbourhoods have been very effective in making streets and squares more liveable within days or weeks. The very attractive umbrella term Tactical Urbanism was coined in North America – and is used more and more. Often such tactics start bottom up – as actions that are a bit subversive and initiated by local citizens or other activists. More and more, they are also used by planners and municipalities, to test new approaches and achieve visible results very quickly.
We hope that with this EPOMM e-update we are able to provide you with inspiration and insights on the approach of planning by doing!
Act TravelWise copy-edits the English version of the e-update and distributes it within the UK.
* Note that 'mobility management' is the European term equating roughly to transport demand management (TDM) - the 'soft measures' aimed at travel behaviour change away from single-occupancy car use, sometimes referred to as 'smarter choices' or 'smarter travel' in the UK.
