Traffic congestion is a major contributor to air pollution, which can cause detrimental health effects, especially in children. Traffic congestion and air pollution is a critical issue on Prinsessegade, a narrow through-street with many schools in Copenhagen’s Christianshavn community. Our team explored potential strategies to the congestion through interviews with locals, experts, and a community discussion regarding our initial conclusions. We combined our initial research with analyses of these findings to present final recommendations to Miljøpunkt Indre By-Christianshavn.
