“15-minute cities” is an urban planning concept that aims to create cities in which all necessary daily goods, services, and amenities are within a 15-minute walk or bike ride from any residence within the city. The idea behind 15-minute cities is to promote sustainable and equitable urban development by reducing reliance on cars and encouraging more active forms of transportation, such as walking and biking. This concept is based on the idea that the average person can walk or bike about 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) in about 15 minutes. By designing cities so that most daily needs can be met within this distance, it is thought that people will be more likely to use active transportation, which can help to reduce air pollution, traffic congestion, and greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, by making it easier for people to access the goods and services they need without relying on cars, 15-minute cities can help to create more livable and equitable communities.
