Dear colleagues,
 
You are invited to a seminar next Tuesday afternoon (July 16th, from 12:00) where a team of researchers from UCL and CUJAE (Havana, Cuba) will be presenting the results of the STEPS-Havana project (Street Environments for Sustainability and Health in Havana)
 
Havana is unique and so are its streets. The city has a lower motorization rate, lower population growth, and less urban sprawl than other cities in the Latin America/Caribbean region. In Havana, more than half of trips are made by walking, and public transport accounts for the majority of motorized trips. However, the city also faces great challenges in terms of the quality of its infrastructure and walking environments, which prevent it from fully realizing the benefits of the active travel taking place.
 
STEPS-Havana used participatory mapping, community street audits, and spatial analysis to produce a new road/street classification and a new walkability model for Havana, as well as a detailed evaluation of the current performance of the walking environment in a busy high street in the city centre.

The seminar will present the main results of STEPS-Havana, in the context of a wider research collaboration on mobility and equity in Havana (the MAS+Havana project), providing an opportunity to discuss strategies for the improvement of street environment in the city.

Lunch and drinks will be provided
