World Car Free Day 2020

22nd September 2020

Event Overview

'Take a wheelchair, take a cart, take a butt-powered super fart'... just some of the ways that poet Martin Kiszko recommends travelling in his fantastic 'Takeaway Carbon' poem! Watch Martin perform it, and celebrate sustainable transport by writing your own version...

On a slightly more serious note, World Car Free Day was started in the 1990s and in the first few years, Bath in the UK was one of the first cities to back the public holiday and encourage use of alternative transport. All around the world towns and cities allow people to experience streets free of motor traffic.

It's a great chance to re-imagine our streets around people.
