Clues: Zeroing in on your topic in World Streets

magnifying glass

World Streets is intended as a convenient way to follow developments at the leading (and lagging) edge of sustainable mobility world wide, as a journal of record, and as a resource. Many of our readers for the most part keep their eye out for the latest articles, but there are also others — students, researchers, citizens looking for background on specific topics — who need to have efficient access to what the full site has to offer as a resource. Which, it turns out, is quite a lot.

Since the closing weeks of 2008 when the first articles and comments started to dribble into the original World Streets website, we have slowly but steadily become home to several thousand contributions from a wide variety of sources and places on a very wide range of topics which relate to and in some cases even determine how we move around in our cities and greater metropolitan areas. All that is well and good but even with a small battery of quite versatile search engines (see Searching World Streets for more on that) , it can be challenging to figure out how to exploit this growing base of experience, knowledge and opinion.

For that reason, we have developed this Clues session, which sets out and will take you to a short list of selected topics which we are tracking particularly closely for their potential as components of global sustainable transport reform. Check us out on behaviour and choice, land use and sprawl, cycling and walking, xCars and xTransit,  politics and civil society, equity and gender, economic instruments and sharing, speed and “free” public transport, benchmarking and parking, and even . . . “Worst Practices” (which at times makes us no friends)  You will see the full list of the current Clues just to your right here on the pop-out listing.

And if you are looking for a good place to warm up, why not start with a selection of our Op-ed pieces?  There are brains at work in World Streets.
