10-minute Towns/ Cities for Sustainable Living

10-minute Towns/ Cities for Sustainable Living

Imagine living in a city or town where your community services and activities are within a 10-minute walk, cycle or bus ride from your home?

To celebrate European Mobility Week from 16-22 September to promote sustainable ways to move about in our daily lives, the Southern Regional Assembly is highlighting the benefits of a 10-minute town or city, where community facilities and services can be reached within a 10 minute walk, cycle or bus ride from home. https://mobilityweek.eu/home/

The Southern Regional Assembly has developed this idea with local authorities in the Southern Region through its 10-minute towns/ cities framework for cleaner and better connectivity.  Developed through the Assembly’s involvement in the Interreg Europe MATCH UP project, the framework feeds into the implementation of the Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy for the Southern Region (RSES).

We have teamed up with WLR FM and it’s Go Greener campaign to spread the word about sustainable transport across Waterford.

Find out more about the 10-minute town/ city framework and the implementation of the RSES here:

Find out about the Match UP project which has been working to ensure sustainable transport strategies are included in public policies, local planning and the RSES.
