Our dependence on cars is damaging our health - and the planet's. Movement asks radical questions about how we approach the biggest urban problem, reflecting on the apparent successes of Dutch cities.
Making our communities safer, cleaner, and greener starts with asking the fundamental question- who do our streets belong to?
Although there have been experiments in decreasing traffic in city centres, and an increase in bike-friendly infrastructure, there is still a long way to go.
In this enlightening and provocative book, Thalia Verkade and Marco te Brommelstroet confront their own underlying beliefs and challenge us to rethink our ideas about transport to put people at the centre of urban design.
'Thalia Verkade is one of those people who continue digging where others would stop, before finally coming up with the most wonderful and surprising discoveries and insights.'
-Joris Luyendijk, author and journalist
'The book offers many unprecedented insights into traffic and mobility, convincingly poses the question of how important mobility actually is and suggests an answer to that. Movement is a compelling thinker.'
-Jury citation from the Brussels Prize 2021
'A revolutionary view of mobility ... Gives us the tools to campaign for something different.'
