      Dear Friends,

      This is a reminder that Earth Car Free Day 2002 will take place one week
      from tomorrow on April 22nd. You are invited to check into The Commons
      special ECFD website at http://www.earthcfd.org, to view the information
      on the events already planned and announced on the parallel forum of the
      Earth Day Network. If you click the “What’s New?” link on the top menu
      you will see what else is taking place on the world CFD scene. (More
      perhaps than you may have thought?)

      Traditionally Car Free Days have been organized in many places from the
      "top down", with government authorities proclaiming the Day and then
      taking the lead to make it work. When carefully prepared and broadly
      supported, this approach has worked well, and the ECFD team is working
      hand in hand to support projects coming out of cooperating City Halls.
      But we are also hard at work to support grass-roots movements and
      demonstrations led by other actors on the local scene, creating new
      partnerships with local government.

      Earth Car Free Day 2001 is a joyful, wide-open, non-bureaucratic, 100%
      volunteer event. It does not use a drop of taxpayer money and takes a
      vigorous "Big House" approach to CFD organization: celebrating diversity
      and active local commitment above all. We see it as a shining model for
      citizen consultation and action, and for democracy, for the 21st
      century.

      If you are planning something for the Day, we invite you to share your
      project information with us. You can enter it directly into the
      database on the site, which has been laid out to make this an easy
      chore. Your postings will encourage and help others as they consider
      how they too might give this a try.

      With all good wishes,

      Eric Britton
