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 two examples, 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.
This document was written by Mathieu Martin, Head of Cooperation, CODATU Tunis (Tunisia) and Marion Hoyez, Head of Cooperation Kochi (India). It is available in four languages : French, English, Spanish and Portuguese (Brazilian).
