What is the concept of a 5 minute city?

    Good question, Lucy.  The idea of a 5 minute city has to do with laying the city out very efficiently in a circle pattern.  This means that no mater where you live in the outskirts of the town, it will take you the same amount of time to get into the town square.  Also, these little towns can be arranged around a bigger city, so that all of the towns will only take 5 minutes to get into the city.  This makes for shorter, easier commutes and therefore less pollution and hassle.  The scale of such a layout can be changed, so the 5 minute time frame may change, but the point is that it provides a convenient and similar commute for everyone.

    Hope this helps!
