a "Post-Car City beyond Car-Oriented City Planning “workshop with the aim of reviewing the latest scientific methods related to reducing traffic congestion and expanding urban structures based on walking was held by Dr. Bahrami on the Connect platform. Dr. Bahrami tried to emphasize the importance of this issue by referring to the history and providing practical examples along with reviewing the study of University of Westminster on walking.

On Saturday, February 19, 2022, a workshop by Dr. Farzaneh Bahrami, Assistant Professor at Groningen University in the Netherlands, entitled "Post-Car City beyond Car-Oriented City Planning ", was held in collaboration with the Center for International Science and Technology Cooperation (CISTC) of the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology. This workshop was hosted by the International Scientific Cooperation Office of Yazd University.

This workshop started by reviewing the latest scientific methods related to reducing traffic congestion (car traffic) and expanding urban structures based on walking, functional plan as well as problems of their implementation in Yazd. Sketching the experience of the transition from car-oriented planning towards sustainability paradigm in European cities, the lecture positions the current trends of car ownership and car use in Europe within a slow but visible cultural and spatial shift.

In the second part, the presentation showcases a recent study, conducted in collaboration with Active Travel Academy (University of Westminster, London, Uk) on walking. The study looks into the spaces and spatialities of “frequent walkers” in London Greater area. Taking walking as a wild card of futures of mobilities, the study evaluates the potentials and opportunities for radically increasing the share of walking both from a spatial point of view and in terms of public health. In general, Dr. Bahrami tried to emphasize the importance of the topic by referring to the history and providing practical examples along with reviewing the studies.

 It is noted that the workshop was well-received by researchers and enthusiasts from Iran and the Netherlands, including a significant number of faculty members from various departments of Yazd University. This three-hour course was held on the Connect platform.
