Welcome to the Future of Slow Cities w/ Paul Tranter

In this episode, we head down under, for a chat with Professor Paul Tranter about we why all need to just slow down a bit.

Show Notes:

In episode number 81, John welcomes to the podcast Paul Tranter, Honorary Associate Professor in Geography in the School of Science at the University of New South Wales Canberra in Australia where he researches children’s well-being and the dominance of speed and mobility in urban planning and society. His work has demonstrated that child-friendly modes of walking, cycling, and public transit are also the modes that paradoxically reduce time pressure for urban residents. In this conversation, we dive into the details of his recent book Slow Cities: Conquering our Speed Addiction for Health and Sustainability that he co-authored with Rodney Tolley.
