Codatu: Practical Guide for the organisation of car-free days

CODATU is an association working towards sustainable urban mobility in developing countries. It supports urban transport projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America by providing training courses and by organizing scientific exchanges and technical cooperation.
 
The organization of car-free days is a powerful tool in terms of raising awareness as it demonstrates our cities’ potential when free from traffic and enables citizens to reclaim the public space.
 
This practical guide has been developed based on two examples of car-free days organized by CODATU: Kochi in India, and Tunis in Tunisia. Drawing from twoexamples, this guide presents the main features and shows that these events can in fact be organized within a short time period (1-2 months) and at minimal cost.
