CAR BUSTERS PONDERS SECOND NAME
We at Car Busters Central have realised that some occasions
call for a name that sounds more serious, respectable and
official than Car Busters. It was decided at the Towards
Car-Free Cities III conference that we would therefore
adopt a second name (in addition to, not replacing, Car
Busters). Suggested titles so far include Carfree Futures
Network, Carfree International and Alliance for Carfree
Environments (ACE). We would like to solicit your name
suggestions as well. We'll even offer a prize (as well as
fame and glory) to the person who submits the winning name.
Please send them on in by June 1.
TOWARDS CAR-FREE CITIES IV IN BERLIN?
At the very successful and productive Towards Car-Free
Cities III conference in Prague (March 17-22), it was
decided that, in order to develop and maintain the Car
Busters network, it is necessary to have an annual meeting.
The next conference, Towards Car-Free Cities IV, will be
held in July 2004. So far the only proposal to host it
comes from Berlin, where two people are already researching
funding sources and facilities. Serious proposals for
holding the conference elsewhere than Berlin are accepted
up until June 1 on the carfree_network@...
listserve (see above). Guidelines, so that you can make a
proper pitch, will be e-mailed to those who express
interest in hosting the event. As for Towards Car-Free
Cities V in 2005, there is already a proposal from the good
people of Budapest.
