Q and A with Gil Penalosa
" Every city should have a law of two words: pedestrians first”, says Gil Penalosa, Founder & Chairman of the Board of a non-profit organisation called 8-80 Cities.
The organization is based on a simple yet powerful philosophy: if you create a great city for an 8 year old as well as an 80 year old, you will create a successful city for all people. Gil Penalosa is passionate about cities for all people. He advises decision makers and communities on how to create vibrant cities and healthy communities and focuses on the design and use of parks and streets as great public places, as well as sustainable mobility. "I do think that we're moving away from an economy where poeple need to own everything to an economy where people want to have access to things but not necessarily to own them" he told reporter Kalina Olejniczak during his visit to Poland for the Open Eyes Economy Summit in Cracow.
