Description

Walkability is commonly associated with the ability to safely and comfortably walk within a reasonable distance. However, are you aware that walkability would not only be of benefit for us humans but also for the environment? Well, how is that possible? Walking has less environmental impact when compared to any other mode of transportation in terms of both climate and local air quality. This is because transportation is responsible for 23% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Thus, building a walkable city ensures a sustainable mode of travel that preserves the future of the planet for today’s children and generations beyond. Accordingly, KotaKita’s exhibition allows participants to understand the concept of walkability in the context of Kota Kinabalu and its benefits to the environment via engaging posters. Our exhibition also invites the participants to express their thoughts and concerns about the environment through activities like "A Wall of Hope" and "Community Engagement via Interactive Feedback Systems". To gauge the learners’ understanding, quizzes will also be conducted. Do join us to explore more about walkable cities and its importance to sustainable development!
