We have often said that new mobility is a strategy which is ultimately made up of a very large number of often very small things. And so it is just in this spirit that we have decided to launch a new series in which you are invited to participate. It is the 2011 World Streets Bright Awards, celebrating "great small ideas that can be multiplied by thousands and make a difference". It's simple and works like this.

Eric Britton, editor | 9 March 2011 at 12:23 | Categories: * Random post, graphics, media, pattern recognition, reprinted, strategic planning | URL: http://wp.me/psKUY-1qa

In order to turn around a very big boat that is moving in the wrong direction – think

global warming or any of the other wrong-way trips that we are currently locked into when it comes to transport in cities – it helps to be smart, studious and work very hard. But it is if anything even more important to have a feel for what is really going on. And this is where the fine art of pattern recognition comes in. Pattern recognition: all too often the empty chair when it comes to understanding and decision making in the field of transport policy and practice. No wonder we are doing so poorly.

To fix Sustainable Transport: Ensure Full Gender Parity in all Decision and Investment Fora (QED)
Eric Britton, editor | 8 March 2011 at 16:51 | Categories: Activities/Events, editorial, equity, pattern recognition, women | URL: http://wp.me/psKUY-1pX

Today is International Women's Day. And not only that, 2011 marks the one hundredth anniversary of this great and necessary idea.

We invite you to join us in this challenge and make it one of the major themes of sustainable transport policy worldwide in 2011. Read more of this post Add a comment to this post
