Medium-density walkable, bikeable communities best hope to put less C02 in atmosphere

 SWITCH volunteer
Halifax Nova Scotia held its very first SWITCH DAY on september 9th 2012 - put one long series of connected Streets from Agricola to South Park in the slow lane: no car tires, only feet and bikes.

Thousands turned about (half of them electoral candidates and their volunteers) (joke!)

About half came with their bikes - from 2 years olds in tandem bikes to people I estimate into their late seventies.

Agricola St is so COOL !

Church services, music, food, gossip, hand goods and sunshine filled the street with activity.

People caught up with people they hadn't seen in years - wonderful !
