Edinburgh is visually stunning, but its poorly maintained streets and pavements and lack of pedestrian areas let the city down.
Rival cities including Dublin, Oslo, Barcelona are taking traffic out the city centre and creating new places for walking and public life.
Bold proposals on walking are needed if Edinburgh is to maintain its status as a great place to live and visit.
Living Streets is calling on mayoral and local election candidates in a selection of major UK cities to pledge to make their cities healthier, cleaner and less congested by making our streets safe and inviting for everyone to walk.
