Last week, I had the honor to receive another award for Swapit. This time it was for the Walk21HK CityTech Awards.
Walk21HK is about:
[…] Hong Kong is leading the charge to become one of Asia’s most walkable cities and what this means to both you and the society in which you live. Experience how “pedestrian-first” environments promote economic growth, social inclusion and health and wellbeing. Learn about emerging trends, build networks and have an impact on local policy agendas.
There were several finalists and a few winners who have created solutions that address walkability more directly than Swapit. However, we were still be honored with a nice award for Swapit. In fact, we believe Swapit makes our world a bit more walkable by reducing the amount of people that need to flow through the city. Swapit connects buyers and sellers nearby, through which they actually do not need to travel far to close their sale. As a result, Swapit encourages walking by connecting within walking distance. No individual, no public transport needed. Walking is just fine.
