20 Minute City

A 20-minute City is a smart city concept in which no matter where citizens live, they can easily access (within 20 minutes) the places they need to visit on a daily basis.

This is the simple concept that most of peoples day to day work, educational, shopping or recreational activities should be located within 20 minutes walking, cycling or public commuting from their homes.

The 20 minute time frame is somewhat arbitrary, and some thinkers believe that a 30-minute City is a more attainable target.
