Use of public space and SUMP - PROSPERITY training material

By Robert Pressl / Updated: 13 Aug 2019

Public space has always been a very controversial topic largely studied from the perspective of various research fields and figuring among the main themes considered by the European cities. Since it is public, everybody should be able to use it, but in practice the situation is much more complex. Actually, its use is highly determined by its design and has a crucial influence on the accessibility of various places, on the urban mobility and ultimately on the quality of life. This module is meant to inform on the interdependencies between the design of public spaces, their use and the sustainable urban mobility and development in order to support cities and municipalities in the promotion and implementation of efficient SUMPs.
