Car-free events are a powerful tool, converting streets to public spaces and contributing to positive environmental, economic, and social outcomes. Yet for these benefits, sustaining and scaling up car-free events has its share of challenges, ranging from prohibitive costs to re-routing transit to managing risks of hostile vehicles.
Join this session to hear about different operational models, data collection methods, and safety plans cities use to develop car-free programs that they can sustain and the public can count on. This will be a participatory session; we want to hear from you too! What prevents your city from organizing more frequent and expansive car-free events on your streets?
Session Format: Case-study presentations & moderated Q&A
