The Streets for People Challenge is an initiative of the Smart Cities Mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, to inspire cities to create walking-friendly streets through quick measures in response to COVID-19. The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs launched the Challenge on 11th September 2020.
The Challenge will support cities across the country to develop a unified vision of streets for people in consultation with stakeholders and citizens.
The Challenge aims to create flagship walking initiatives in cities, which focus on placemaking and liveability. Cities will be required to reimagine their streets as public spaces through the lens of economic regeneration, safety, and child-friendly initiatives, in order to ensure a green recovery from COVID-19.
The ITDP India Programme is the knowledge partner of the Smart Cities Mission for the Challenge, providing guidance through the preparation of resource material and facilitation of online peer-to-peer learning workshops.
