Car free days - City and country reports
- This is to invite you to share with @World Car Free Day reports on how the
Day went in your city, country, neighborhood or family. The email address is
of course email@example.com.
If available, it will be good to have photos, graphics (e.g., the logo if
any), newspaper reports, poll results and other forms of feedback including
personal commentaries If you send the larger graphics to me separately, I
can load them into the Library so that they can be downloaded by those who
may be interested (bearing in mind that file size is a problem for some of
us). Also if there is anything which we can all see via Links, that is the
most efficient *(especially when the linked materials are explained by a
line or two of background so that the reader knows what it is and why it's
going to be worth the trip).
As an example, I spent the day and the week in Bilbao as a guest of the city
observing, interacting and commenting on the day, its preparations and
follow-up intentions. Hope to get a report to the group on this over the
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Because it's the feedback cycle that the whole Car Free Day thing is really
about. Both the feedback from the people in the streets to the political
authorities and demonstrators (our elected and paid for by us public
SERVANTS), and to the community as a whole (which is thus empowered by this
cooperative exercise). Then too there is the whole wonderful process of
'cross-learning' as we look at and learn from each other (which of course is
why we are all here in this forum in the first place, n'est-ce pas?).
I think we all look forward to this.
