The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs had launched the “Streets for People Challenge” to inspire cities to create walking friendly streets through quick measures and to reimagine their streets as public spaces through the lens of economic regeneration, safety and child friendly interventions with inclusive designing.
KSCDL with the core committee comprising of representatives from wards, citizen groups, professionals and city officials had organized Open Streets campaign around the city between October and November 2020 to create awareness about the need to share street spaces with Cyclists, Pedestrians and citizens including children, aged people and people with disabilities and also for trees, plants and nature.
