Sweden is pioneering the "one-minute city," a hyper-local vision inspired by the push for decentralizing urban services and creating dense, walkable communities where residents can find almost everything they need within minutes.

The project, dubbed Street Moves, is being piloted in four sites around Stockholm, where residents can decide how street space is used and allocated through community workshops and consultations. The goal isn't to make everything available within one minute, but rather to reimagine the patches of street immediately outside the home as "critical connecting spaces for communities" and not just "places to move and store cars." If successful, Sweden plans to implement the program on every street in the country by 2030.

Creating pop-up greenspaces with benches, a picnic table and racks for cycles and e-scooters has brought people together to eat and interact.
