Rethink city planning and mobility in Africa
Amanda Ngabirano, director and urban planner at MOVE Mobility Africa, takes us on a journey through her world and the potential for Africa to learn from and leapfrog past the mistakes European cities have made, and create more livable, thriving, sustainable cities. Watching this film is a must!
Car-centric African cities challenged by the effects of rapid urbanization are facing daily traffic congestion, air pollution and transportation challenges and Amanda, bicycling enthusiast, urban planner, and lecturer at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda is passionate about the solutions that lie in alternative modes of transport.
While Africa is still a green continent, Amanda believes that by design we are at a risk of losing the green and that it’s time for tough decisions to be made regarding the mobility issues affecting everyone in cities.
