challenge: how many people from one Edmonton community can leave their
personal automobiles at home and get eco-mobile for the month of June?
Project teams in the host community and at the City of Edmonton are
providing as much help as they can.
Between March and July, Barb and the RBCC team will document and share
this global first from the perspective of the people (link to players
page) who are making it happen. Watch for bi-monthly episodes posted on
this web site and airing on the Made-in-Alberta show on Shaw TV, Channel
Global Alliance for EcoMobility is one of the partners in Local Motion
2009. For this project, eco-mobility modes are broken down into four
categories: cycling (ie. bicycles, tricycles); walking/wheeling (ie.
skateboards, wheelchairs, rollerblades); public transit (bus, LRT, DATS);
ride-sharing (car-pooling, trip-planning).
