Why Social Equity Must Be the Base for 15-Minute City Advocacy

Urban planning advocate, Devin Silvernail, calls for a more equitable approach to 15-minute cities, one that is centered on serving the needs of people of all-incomes and on ensuring equal access to quality services for all. Silvernail highlights Seattle’s income-diverse communities initiative as an example and suggests learning from cities such as Barcelona, Paris, and Amsterdam. Finally, he advocates for expanding the focus of the 15-minute city concept from proximity to community building.
