Leidraad shows what a green public space looks like with more space for meetings, pedestrians and cyclists. Leidraad does this for different types of streets, districts and neighborhoods in Groningen. As such, the guide provides inspiring insight into looking at the city in a different way. To this end, Leidraad presents the ten dimensions of the street. Mobility is no longer the norm, but accessibility, safety, experience, health, social interaction, environment, climate adaptation, economics and cultural history together make the street.
