The objectives of the month long festival are to:
â€¢ Enable behavioural change by showing that using car free methods of transport
(walking, cycling, public transport ) is feasible, doable and has many positive impacts
on commuters, the City and the environment
The Festival will include the following kinds of events:
â€¢ Be eco-mobile, use public transport, cycle or walk to and in Sandton: A month
long closure of certain streets in Sandton. The streets to be closed will be decided
after detailed traffic studies are done and through public consultation. Alternative
transport will be arranged.
â€¢ Ways to be car free and eco-mobile: The hosting of an International Conference
and Exhibition where South Africans will be exposed to international trends and
innovation in respect of sustainable ways of movement such as electric vehicles and
â€¢ Turning Sandton inside out: Cycle rides, fun runs, pop up parks and restaurants,
music and food festivals along the streets that will be closed.
