About Urban Structure

The wellbeing of people in cities is dependent to a large degree on the urban structure. Access to clean water, sanitation, safe travel opportunities, and so on are all critical to urban life. Further, the ability to enjoy time outdoors and to meet and interact with others in the city is vital for personal wellbeing and for community cohesiveness. Transport cannot be addressed in isolation from the urban form, as cities that by design require people to travel long distances will inherently make it more difficult to reduce congestion. WBB seeks to promote a positive approach to urban planning that reduces the need for travel and increases opportunities for social interaction, while also addressing other basic needs of urban dwellers.
