The city of Johannesburg, the economic hub of South Africa, ran a daring experiment which showed alternative possibilities: as part of the EcoMobility World Festival, a hundred thousand commuters converted to ecomobility--for four weeks, private cars were replaced by public transport, bicycles and pedestrian traffic in the Sandton business district. 'Change the way you move!' documents the EcoMobility World Festival 2015 and shares fascinating solutions to this challenge, as well as experiences and lessons learnt. What is especially inspiring is not just the dedicated cooperation between citizens and various stakeholders, but also the contribution of the festival to social integration and to the overcoming of spatial apartheid."-- Provided by publisher.
