4 ways to make 24-hour cities safer, more productive and more inclusive
City leaders and planners, nighttime experts, and activists from more than fifty cities across twenty-one countries joined forces last year to identify challenges, share best practices and develop new ways to make the nighttime economy stronger, safer, and more inclusive.
The result was the 24-Hour Cities Network, a global initiative spearheaded by the cities of Bogotá and New York along with Mastercard’s City Possible, a global ecosystem that brings together public and private organizations to solve urban challenges.
Here are four the key findings gathered in a new policy report:
- Safe nighttime streets do not necessarily require additional police presence.
- Nighttime governance is not just about traditional nightlife.
- Mobility at night is a challenge for both workers and revelers.
- Protecting a city’s nocturnal heritage is everyone’s job.
