Modern, developed, sophisticated cities are defined not by their highways but by their quality walkways, protected and connected bike paths and green ways that reflect and celebrate human dignity. Just like birds need to fly, fish need to swim, and deer need to run, we need to walk
In Qatar, we experience a growing number of infrastructure improvements that make walking and biking feasible. For example: we can use the Metro, walk, or bicycle to work. It’s up to us to take advantage of them.
As we navigate physical social distancing and travel restrictions, these COVID-19 times offer an opportunity to reflect on our daily habits and behaviours that are often made on auto-pilot. We have the choice to shift our thinking, train in resilience, and zoom out for a broader post-COVID19 perspective, and to plan ahead for our new daily routines that become the new normal.
Which of these will save over half a tonne of greenhouse gases (GHG) per year?
