Local Motion Episode Nine Video Info

Full Title: “Local Motion 2009 Episode Nine: The Global City”

Local Motion 2009 (Ep. 9): The Global City
Released July 20, 2009

Parkallen Local Motion challengers are re-learning ways of getting around without the car. City planners come from all over to re-learn how to build neighbourhoods and cities - so we don’t need a car.

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).
