This week we share stories covering walking to work, a project to turn parking into affordable homes and coworking space, some marketing recommendations, and 4 podcast conversations worth listening to.

πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ”What if everyone could walk to work?”

Variations of this question have come up again and again across the globe and right through the pandemic-induced lockdowns.

It’s also been front-of-mind for the TownSq team over the summer, leading to the preparation and release of a report that features research, findings and case-studies around possible improvements to commuting times, workplace locations and the concept of bringing coworking into town centers.

Note: This is an idea that’s definitely trending across most of our network too.
