This came in from Eric Britton just now.

>Greetings from a very nippy, 3 sweater Paris,,
>What you have here in the attached is what is probably the most important single chunk of paper and campaign that I have ever engaged, with the intent to explain and seek support for our work under the World street family of programs and projects. Since it is already an overflowing cornucopia and since your time is short let me keep this brief:
>What you have here is the core document that I have drafted over the last week for an outreach campaign I intend to launch this week. It has two goals:
>· First, to introduce and to solicit collaboration and inputs for the most important of the latticework of sustainable cities and sustainable transport programs that I have tried to launch and lead to fruition over the last 24 years, since the birth of what we call the New Mobility Agenda back in 1988.
>· The second is to seek financial support for these efforts, both long term and as possible in the immediate future. Now this is a delicate task, and most of what I have to say on this you will find in the first and last pages of the attached.
>This is still a draft and clearly needs and will get more work. But might you have any comments or suggestions on any of this to help us get these critical messages cross? Both in terms of the text and presentation, but also to others, including eventual financing sources such as foundations and public agencies with a mandate in this broad field, whom I might address to keep this big boat afloat.
>Thanks for giving this your attention. I realize it's a pain to take your time for this, but I can only hope that the interest is sufficient to justify it.
>After all, this is an important job and someone has to do it. And at times like this I really do not want to sit on my hands and leave it to someone else
