City of Sydney and C40 Cities
A case study on active transport across Sydney through a gender lens
There is increasing recognition that men and women travel differently in their everyday journeys around cities.
Cred was jointly commissioned by the City of Sydney and C40 Women4Climate Initiative to help them understand if, how and why women use active transport (walking or cycling) as the primary way they travel in Greater Sydney – and if not, why not? This research is part of a broader move to collect gender-sensitive data in recognition that examining planning through the gender lens provides insights to positively support the diversity of communities.
In addition to a review of existing research and city policies, Cred Consulting undertook comprehensive primary research.
As this study was grounded in the power of women to make change, it was important to apply feminist research approaches that acknowledge and value the importance of experience and storytelling.
