. . . invitation to join an open collaborative action plan to cut GHG emissions from the mobility sector in cities by 5% in 2020.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller
Climate/Space/Mobility Action Plan: 2019-2020
EXEC SUM: This open collaborative project just getting underway on World Streets aims to demonstrate how cities can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the mobility sector by at least five percent in the first year after startup. And this by working from a well-prepared two-pronged push and pull strategy based on a combination of (a) sharp VKT reductions (Vehicle Kilometers Traveled) and (b) an expanding ecosystem of Better Choices while working with proven, cost-effective, available technologies and processes.
The project aims to get sharp, measurable results in short time with an approach that is, we argue, Better, Faster and Cheaper — and through this basically reshaping the city’s basic mobility ecosystem. This bold initiative is only possible with very strong leadership and commitment, high technical competence, and an exceptional ability to communicate and engage the population in a fully equitable and positive manner.
COLLABORATIVE STARTUP: Now seeking critical feedback on working materials and proposals, collaborators, presentation opportunities, partners and eventual demonstration projects and sponsors.
PARTNERS/ASSOCIATES: This critical element just getting underway as of 1 August 2019
