This is to let you know that we have dug in and made an effort to get the
World Car Free Days at http://worldcarfreedays.com/ in shape and ready both

of the high spots, most of which directly clickable on the small top menu:
1. Translation: Many of the key pages have now been equipped with one
click machine translation into and from: Dutch, French, German, Italian,
Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Machine translation and tricky, but useful

3. Web: CFDs on the Web
4. Countries: Where do go to find about CFDs in different countries
5. 2008 Survey: Tell us about your CFD plans for 2008. There is a three

to share information and views of Car Free Days and more generally on cities

8. Image Library: A couple of our friends are working on bringing
together a collection of Car Free Day images that you may find inspiring and
useful. As soon as we have them in they will be added to the site.
We hope you will find this useful, and that you will not hesitate to share
your ideas with us on how to make it better. And please share this so that
others will be able to make use of this collaborative effort and perhaps
join in with ideas, information and entries of their own.
Team work for a better world.
PS. Two interesting graphics below. The map shows the origins of the last
seventy people to check into the site. And the listing below shows the
countries of origin of the last 500. Hmm.
