The World Radio speaks about the necessity of slow down and Cittaslow pattern
"The World" is a co-production of PRX and WGBH that broadcasts from the Nan and Bill Harris Studios at WGBH in Boston, Massachusetts, produced by BBC Broadcast.
An interview with the Secretary General of Cittaslow International registered during the most hard period of pandemic in Italy. The core points were the urgency for slow down, the opportunity to test and apply in the cities and little towns new transportations systems and modalities (e.g. New York City, Milan, Tokyo, but also the little Orvieto, the "capitol" of Cittaslow, where there are cable car system, buses, elevators between several multi-level parking areas and the center, bike and e-bike sharing, pedestrian lanes, etc. They are good example of a new approach to circular economy and new sustainable transportation system.
(The World is public radio’s longest-running daily global news program. The radio goal is to engage domestic US audiences with international affairs through human-centered journalism that consistently connects the global to the local and builds empathy for people around the world. Launched in 1996 in response to a lack of international news in commercial media, The World has remained one of public radio’s most essential programs by providing its listeners with daily access to voices and stories not heard anywhere else, via broadcast, podcast and the web. It is possible because of our strong editorial partnerships and digital distribution agreements).
