For a sustainable transport policy to succeed, both in a technical sense but also as good politics, it must be firmly rooted in the full wealth of non-commercial, even non-political issues and interests of the full breadth of society: NGOs, CSOs, neighborhood and others concerned with the common cause.  When it comes to making sustainable transport work, we have to talk to and listen to everybody.  Including very importantly all those who may not agree with you. we don’t have to lie down in front of their objections, but we do have to listen to them.

Here you have our first starting place in identifying the key building blocks that need to be brought into the process.  Your additions, corrections and comments are warmly welcomed.
