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.
