Transit-Oriented Development 2 - Public spaces, mobility hubs and transport declarations

Car travel consumes scarce fossil oil resources, accelerates climate change globally and creates air pollution locally. Transit-oriented development is an urban design policy that aims to reshape car-oriented neighborhoods, integrate transit infrastructure into neighborhoods, and inspire a shift from private cars to walking and public transport.

This initiative will examine station areas in Sweden, Denmark and China to develop a TOD2 framework with perspectives on public spaces, shared mobility and innovative mobility hubs, andcarbon neutrality toolboxes .This aims to contribute to achieving decarbonization and reduced oil dependency in European and Chinese cities.
