Moving Beyond Cars: Making Our Streets More Livable, 10/3/13

20130928beyondcarsCome enjoy a series of short films celebrating transportation solutions from around the world and share ideas to create more livable streets here in the Bay Area. We’ll be inspired by films from places near and far, where biking, pedestrian and transit systems have made cities healthier and more enjoyable, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Following the films, we’ll brainstorm ways to encourage Berkeley to move beyond cars – to walk, bike and take transit. We’ll learn about plans for upcoming car-free events: Walk & Roll Day on October 9th and Sunday Streets celebration on October 13th. Timothy Burroughs, Climate Action Coordinator for the City of Berkeley, will give a short update on progress and plans for transportation in Berkeley. Bring your ideas for a campaign to encourage car-free living, and suggestions for practical plans Berkeley can adopt to create more livable streets.

Light and local refreshments will be served. This event is cosponsored by Transition Berkeley, Berkeley Climate Action Coalition Transportation Working Group and BFUU’s Social Justice Committee. Join us next Thursday, October 3rd from 7 – 9 PM, for more details, click here.

    • Hi Sonia,

      The films we screened were all from streetfilms.org, a great resource for transportation stories and solutions from around the world. I will send a list of the films and some notes from our discussion to the email you posted with this comment.

      Thanks for your interest!
      -Leah
