You have learned how women and men in general experience public space and traveling differently. But what about you?
Is data about safety and security an integral part of your work with urban transport? If so – how do you integrate safety and security in your work?
Do you collect both quantitative and qualitative data?
Please, share about the place you live. Remember to state which city, region, or country the data is from.
Barcelona — I recently completed a PhD on child-friendly cities and children’s involvement in urban planning, focusing on Oslo. There are many parallels between what makes a city better for women and what makes a city better for children. I think using a mix of quantitative and qualitative data is essential to understand these topics. I am currently engaged in a project looking at neurodiversity and cities; safety and security are recurrent themes there as well.
Although I currently work in a primary education, I actually collected some data about kids’ mobility at our school. I am still analysing the data, but what is important is that in the questionnaire we touched upon sustainability, not so much on safety and security. Maybe this could be an idea for the next survey though…
Safety is very important measure needs to be considered, the time of departure of the trip will determine if that particular transport is safe or not, also the route. Even the public bus stop is not safe in late evenings.
In my work I don’t work that much with data. Especially in Greece there is a huge gap in data. In SUMPs though I’m trying to collect data regarding mobility, and regarding safety and security through questionnaires for residents and school children.
