●22日は車に乗らない日

9月22日は、WorldCarFreeDay。

Jammers and creatives,

Every September 22, people across the globe get together to swear off their cars - if only for one day - in a collective reminder that we don't have to accept car-dominated societies, cities, or personal lives. Since its earliest incarnations in the 1970s and '80s, WORLD CAR-FREE DAY has grown into a massive global celebration of human-centric communities and people-powered transportation.

Car-Free Day 2007 could turn out to be the biggest yet. For the first time, China's government is hopping on board, with official events talking place in more than 100 cities, including Beijing and Shanghai. Officials will reportedly be trading in their famed black sedans for public transportation, and some roads will be closed to private cars.

As the world tunes in to the fact that the climate is heating up, this is the perfect opportunity to take the heat off the planet, and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling, walking and public transport, instead of oil-hungry automobiles.

Visit ADBUSTERS.ORG for links to global resources on going car-free, first on September 22, and then in your everyday life. Let World Car-Free Day be a showcase for just how our cities might look, feel, and sound without cars - 365 days a year.

Cheers,
The Adbusters Team
