Lab.MaP , organized by the Como Anda project, received 22 new subscribers with ideas and projects about mobility on foot in Brazil. The initiative, which brings together local actors and involves governments, civil society, universities and companies, is organized into three major phases (theoretical, tooling and practical) between March and July 2021, until the actions are implemented. Silvia Stuchi, one of those responsible for Lab.MaP, explains that this involves an extra step to promote the actions of mobility on foot, which is a more inclusive, healthy and economical mode of transport with less environmental and climate impact.
