Cities should provide affordable options for living and travelling to all of its citizens. Socially fair provisions should be the norm. Policy and planning must be utterly responsive to the needs of those with physical disabilities or reduced economic means. This also extends to the needs of children and families.
When designing the organization and functionality of spaces, the most vulnerable users should always be taken into consideration first. Making sure that young and old, rich and poor, physically fit and disabled, long-time residents and newcomers, all have the opportunity to thrive – this will be the test of a truly sustainable city.
