20 Minute City Writing


Title A 20 Minute City
Introduction A 20 minute city is a concept of commuting to different facilities in under 20 minutes, hence the name “20 minute cities”. It would be quicker and better than a normal city. A 20 minute city would have everything from supermarkets, hospitals, parks and recreation, education and even public transport, all in the span of 15-20 minutes. There are many benefits of living in a 20 minute city.

1st element

The first benefit is travel. Since public facilities will be within reach in 20 minutes, it’s faster to travel since you don’t need to travel anywhere else but the suburb that you live in. For example, if you are trying to go to the dairy in a normal city, travel times would take around 5-15 minutes. But thanks to the amazing concept of a 20 minute city, travel times get sliced into a good 3-10 minutes. In fact, some residents can walk there in just a couple minutes.

2nd element

My second benefit is emissions and money which is in relation to the first benefit. Since commuting is way closer, you would save petrol, which would lower emissions in a 20 minute city, rather than increasing emissions by traffic jams on the motorway. Saving petrol would also save money, and even your mental health, let me explain.

Since there wouldn’t be as much traffic, you would have good mental health because you won’t have to show your misery in your regular rush hour traffic. But a 20 minute city would be close enough to take a bus or even walk to work.


3rd element

My third and final benefit is mental health. Since there would be lower emissions, active commuting and with the editions of greenspace and parks and traffic jams. Quality air would be a big reason.
Conclusion So those were benefits to a 20 minute city. Travel, saving money and mental health. This topic was very interesting and I hope that this idea goes forward into countries. In fact cities like Paris, Barcelona and even New York.

Dear new government, 

Since the elections are over, we would like to suggest some things that would make a good government. 

Let’s start off on the young children, we think you should improve in things related to healthcare. It would also be amazing to help all the single mums and dads out there, just to make life even better! We think it is very important to focus more on the children and how their future is going to go and not just focus on spending all of your money on printing even more money! We need them to pursue jobs that get them successful in life and not on the streets with no money and food.

Another point is money. Currently, New Zealand is having a horrible time if we’re talking about economics.

(2nd script) Another point is money. Currently, New Zealand is still under recession, which means that the economic activity……
