The 8 Principles of Sidewalks

Building more active cities

This guide provides municipal technicians and city planners with a practical approach and guidelines on how to design high-quality sidewalks. It was originally written in Portuguese for a Brazilian audience and later translated to English. Now, cities around the world can adapt and apply the guidelines considering their needs and local context. We hope that this guide will help improve infrastructure and mobility for pedestrians by turning sidewalks into more attractive spaces.
