TOWARDS CARFREE CITIES IV
19-24 July, 2004 - Berlin, Germany
Towards Carfree Cities IV will bring together people from across Europe and beyond
who are promoting practical alternatives to car dependence - walking, cycling and
public transport, and ultimately the transformation of cities, towns and villages into
human-scaled, pedestrian environments rich in public space and community life.
The focus will be on strategy, collaboration and exchange, assisting the practical
work of conference participants - whether it be organising car-free days, promoting
urban cycling, or building the carfree cities of the future.
The conference is being organised by World Carfree Network in partnership with
BUND (Friends of the Earth Germany), Green City, Autofrei Wohnen, Autofrei
Leben!, ITDP Europe, UMKEHR and Carfree.com.
Early registration discount available until 19 March. Discounted fees are 170 EUR
(full rate) and 100 EUR (NGO/student rate). On-line credit card payment available.
