Local Motion 2009 Episode Ten: The Next Steps Video Info

Full Title: “Local Motion 2009 Episode Ten: The Next Steps”

Local Motion 2009 (Ep. 10): The Next Steps

Released July, 2009

The Local Motion challenge is over, but the challenge of eco-mobility goes on. Parkallen residents reduced car travel and CO2 emissions for the month of June 2009, so what are the next steps?

About Local Motion – An Eco-mobility Challenge

The 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. “Local Motion 2009” video project documents and shares this global first.

About Eco-mobility

The 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).
