The 15-minute City Transition Pathway (15mC)

The 15-minute City transition pathway focusses on rethinking the existing mobility system and urban morphology to encourage sustainable mobility choices, redistribute urban space and reorganise our daily activities so to make our cities more climate neutral, liveable and inclusive.

The concept of the 15-minute City is based on the idea that city dwellers should be able to cover the vast majority of their daily needs within a 15-minute radius, by walking and cycling, while connecting to further districts and travelling larger distances by other forms of sustainable transport. The 15-minute City mission is to facilitate analysis, elaboration, experimenting and testing of innovations for 15-minute cities in co-creative settings, bringing these together in a 15-minute City innovation portfolio of 50+ experiences and practices, recognising different urban contexts and focusing on transferability.


15mC is coordinated by Maximilian Jäger, Austria tech email –
