Livable today, sustainable for the future
The principles outlined here are intended to inspire us to improve the quality of life in cities today while ensuring their viability tomorrow.The successful city of the 21st century will be replete with choices, including non-motorized, post-fossil fuel travel options. Citizens of the world do not want to sit inbumper-to-bumper traic. They do not want to walk in mud, nor feel threatenedon a simple bike ride to work. They want to be in cities that provide for creativeinteraction, aordable living and healthy movement.Cities that meet the challenge of sustainability will leap ahead of others by attracting people who demand a healthy and culturally-rich lifestyle.
Purpose of this campaign
Sustainability does not have to hurt. Reducing CO2 emissions, conserving land,and making transport more eicient go hand in hand with improving quality of life. We aspire to lay the foundation for achieving global sustainability not throughuniform technological solutions but through a global celebration of local dierenceand innovation based on a common set of principles.The Our Cities Ourselves campaign invites design teams from ten cities around the world to apply these ten principles to ten unique locations . This book illustratesthe ten principles that lay behind the designs. Our hope is that national and localleaders worldwide will look to it for inspiration.The 26th of June, 2010On behalf of ITDPWalter Hook
