The United States

Our Fieldwork

Our fieldwork in the United States has come to a close. If you have experienced problems using streets as a pedestrian anywhere in United States, we would still love to hear from you – especially if you have tried to challenge or change things using law or politics. Please fill in our Global Online Survey of Pedestrian Exclusion.

The Inclusive Public Space project team is now recruiting participants in Syracuse, New York, and Atlanta, Georgia. We want to hear about your experiences of inaccessible or difficult streets in these cities and the reasons why you have or haven’t reported or challenged problems. We also want to learn your thoughts on good practices and how accessibility can be improved. We are particularly keen to hear from people with disabilities, older adults and parents or caregivers. Anybody interested in participating does not need to live in Atlanta or Syracuse, they need only have had experiences with streets, sidewalks, etc.

If you would be happy to be interviewed by phone or online, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. As well as an interview, you will have the chance to get involved in the project in other ways. We will ask you to identify a street journey that you find difficult – and be given the option to accompany a videographer during filming or feature in the film if you wish – and to tell a story of how problem streets have affected your life. You do not need to leave your home to participate, as everything will be done by phone or online. There is the option to accompany the videographer during the street filming, but this is not required and will not affect participation.

We would like to keep in touch with you as we work on guides and tools and bring you together with other people interested in the subject to share experiences and ideas. Our aim is to draw on what you tell us to help make cities more inclusive.

If you have any questions or if you can help us by sharing your experiences in an interview, please contact us:
