Title: Holiday for the car
Wuppertal eight families for a month without a car mastered their daily lives and the daily paths and errands on foot, traveled by bicycle or by bus and (levitation) train.
The action has to give an impetus to rethink one's own mobility behavior. In exchange for the car keys, they received tickets include free month, a comprehensive, free consultation and offer the opportunity to exchange experiences. A comprehensive public awareness has been achieved through strategic cooperation with the media. Press and television reports reached a wide audience. From the action came further ideas for projects that start in the fall of 2010.
