On World Carfree Day, people from around the world get together in the streets, intersections, and neighborhood blocks to remind the world that they don’t have to accept a car-dominated society.
Let World Carfree Day be a showcase for just how our cities might look like, feel like, and sound like without cars…365 days a year.
As the climate heats up, World Carfree Day is the perfect time to take the heat off the planet, and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling, walking and public transport, instead of to the automobile.
