Summary: The marked decline in traffic and the considerable improvement in air quality that followed the lockdown periods proved that environmentally friendly means of transport and sustainable mobility are essential to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Moreover, the pandemic has convinced several municipal administrations to speed up ambitious projects in the field of sustainable mobility and has initiated a general reflection on the distribution of space between users in historical centers, including the 15-minute city policies.

The workshops took place between February 9 and March 18, 2021 and the topics were inspired by the theme chosen for the 16th World Congress of the OWHC “Enhancing Livability in World Heritage Cities”, by the global COVID-19 crisis as well as by the more general challenges that await cities in the 21st century.
