Climate/Action/Plan SLOW CITY: Vision,Transition, Clues & Strategies

Climate/Action/Plan SLOW CITY: Vision,Transition, Clues & Strategies You begin by slowing down the traffic. In many ways significantly! Next you use technical measures to reduce stop and start driving. After which you introduce a major road diet for all vehicles powered by fossil fuels.

And off you go. . . more to follow What happens if you develop a global transport/mobility strategy for cities around the concept of starting the transition by slowing traffic to obtain specific targeted benefits? And from there go on to bring in newer compatible programs and projects in a strategic and consistent policy environment. . Go to https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/category/slow-city/ for more.

WORTHY MOUSE FAMILY TRAGICALLY LOSES HOME DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE- . NOW LIVING IN CAR

Someone a lot wiser than me, once told me many years ago that: when you find yourself stuck on a really difficult problem, why don’t you see if you can step back a few paces and put it in a form that you can discuss with children and hear what they may have to say.

I recalled this in the early nineties when in the face of the many mind-bending complications of sustainability and mobility — such as we are facing here today — I decided to write a Haiku whose 17 syllables quickly multiplied into a little scenario for a children’s story on the topic, which eventually became, with the great shaping inputs of two of my friends (Wolfgang Zuckermann for the words, and Roget Tweet for the music (artwork) ), the world famous book "Family Mouse behind the Wheel".

Well, "world famous" may be a snatch of an exaggeration, but thus far it has been translated and distributed by cooperating schools in Italian, German, Japanese and French editions. Icelandic? Coming up in 2020.

Twenty-seven years later, want to have a look? Check it out at - - > https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/2016/05/11/family-mouse-behind-the-wheel/ And let us know what you think:

GRETA MEET BUCKY

Greta Thunberg is right on target when she and the School climate strikers say "save the world by changing the rules".

A full generation ago the noted American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and futurist put it like this:

**BREAKING NEWS ON CLIMATE/CITIES/MOBILITY FRONT

WORLD STREETS LAUNCHES OPEN COLLABORATIVE CLIMATE/NEW MOBILITY ACTION PLAN FOR 2019-2020

Reference 1: https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/tag/climateactionplan/
Reference 2: https://www.facebook.com/NewMobilityAgenda/

INVITATION: Readers of World Streets and others are cordially invited to join early discussions and shaping of a proposed collaborative climate emergency initiative just getting underway, aiming to identify and demonstrate by concrete examples ways in which greenhouse gas emissions emanating from the mobility sector can be reduced by a whopping 5% in Year 1. And in Years 2, 3, 4... etc. (Learning by doing.)

WORLD STREETS is betting its future over the coming two-year transition period on the ability of certain ambitious responsible cities, nations, organizations and citizens in different parts of the world to come together to break the downward pattern of climate stress — and specifically plan and execute highly aggressive near-term initiatives aimed at sharply cutting greenhouse gas emissions from the mobility sector. And doing all this while working with tools, policies and strategies that harness proven, cost-effective, readily available, measures, technologies, operational and management competence. And our job is to support them as best we can.

NEAR TERM: The time horizons that are being cited for making major cuts in the environmental load are, in our view, irresponsible. We need near-term results, and for that we need a new pattern. There is no reason to wait any longer, and every reason to attack the challenge immediately. And we are here to support this mobility revolution. The idea is to be judged by the announced public targets and achieved results in the year immediately following the program startup date.

MORE WITH LESS: Here are a couple of acronyms that are central to these strategies — TDM, ICT, VKT, TSM, ITS, MaaS, HOV, LOV, LOS, PBS, . . . among a long list of others – that you are already familiar with and will see developed in the articles, pages and references that follow here. Ways in which to do more with less. And . . . / Better / Quicker / Cheaper. To get a better feeling for this, check out our TDM Primer at https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/tag/tdm-primer/.

ECOSYSTEM: For a well-prepared program, many sharp reductions can be achieved in a matter of months or a couple of years, as opposed to decades (or never). The great art lies in how we prepare them and then knit them all together . . . so as to effectively redefine the entire underlying mobility ecosystem. As our Dutch colleague Marco Te Brömmelstroet put it so well: “The power of a new mobility concept depends not on how well it solves a problem . . . but on how many problems it (partly) solves “. So the goal really is not so much in the details as to change the underlying ecosystem of values and choices.

HANDLING UNCERTAINTY IN TRANSPORT PLANNING AND DECISION MAKING

- Op-Ed: Glenn Lyons, Professor of Future Mobility at UWE Bristol

In the 1700s, the French philosopher Voltaire reportedly said “Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one.” The transport sector is becoming increasingly alive to how uncertain the future is. There is significant (or ‘deep’) uncertainty about the extent to which existing trends, relationships, technologies, economic and social forces, preferences and constraints will carry into the future.

Uncomfortable though it may be, there is a need in our transport planning and decision making to avoid absurdity and address this. This report reflects the insights gained from a roundtable workshop in London convened to discuss the matter.

Arve Hansen’s excellent PhD thesis on the transition from bicycles and walking to motorbikes and cars in Hanoi is available here bit.ly/2MJEPOU. Thanks to Javier Caletrío and our friiends at the UTSG for the heads-up and to the Mobile Lives Forum for the following texte excerpts from their summary presentation at http://bit.ly/2Np3BJB

____________________

1. What is your research topic? What thesis are you defending?
* Interview with the author, Arve Hansen of the Center for Development and the Environment, University of Oslo.

My overall research topic is consumption and development, and I am particularly interested in changing consumption patterns in contexts of rapid social and economic changes. In my PhD thesis I studied the transition from bicycles and walking to motorbikes and cars in Hanoi. In other words, I studied a transition from very low-carbon mobilities to high-carbon mobilities. I approached the topic at the intersection between macro-scale processes of economic development and everyday mobility practices. And in Vietnam’s capital city, understanding contemporary mobilities first and foremost requires an understanding of the motorbike, a so far surprisingly understudied vehicle in the mobilities turn.

Motorised two-wheelers come in a range of shapes and sizes, from large motorcycles to small mopeds. In Vietnam, they are usually the latter, and they are generally all referred to as motorbikes. I will leave it at that. The main point here is not what to call them, but what all motorised two-wheelers have in common: they have been largely neglected in the ‘mobilities turn’. If they do figure in this literature, it tends to be as a form of alternative mobility in car-dominated societies in the ‘West’. So far, almost no research has taken seriously the crucial role the motorbike plays in the daily lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world.

In Southeast Asia, motorbikes are found everywhere. But Vietnam breaks all records. Since the economic reforms known as doi moi were initiated in 1986, Vietnam has been transformed from a country of bicycles to a country of motorbikes. Now, there are perhaps as many as 50 million motorbikes in the country. Indeed, already in 2012 there were on average more than 2,5 motorbikes per household in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The speed of the transition from bicycles to motorbikes has been astounding. Studies have found that in 2005, more than one-third of non-walking trips in Hanoi were covered by bicycle, while a bit more than half of trips involved motorbikes and only one percent cars. By 2012, two-wheeled transport still represented 85 percent of total traffic, but 96.8 percent of this share was represented by motorbikes and only 2.6 percent by bicycles (the remaining 0.6 percent were electric scooters 1) .

Vietnam has thus transformed into a motorbike society, something that is obvious in the streets of Hanoi. In a short space of time the motorbike has come to play an absolutely vital role. The streets are full of small motorbikes, humming, honking, braking, accelerating. They are all around you, forcing you to consider every step while engulfing you in a constant buzzing sound, as if you had entered a gigantic beehive populated by oversized, mechanical bees. They make crossing the street a seemingly insurmountable task. They make sidewalks impossible to walk on. They make the air dangerous to breathe. Indeed, traffic is so challenging that a large number of online user guides for tourists on ‘how to cross the street’ are available.

But most importantly, the motorbike is what makes the city work. It is used to cover more or less every mobility need; to transport impressively large items, to commute to work, to take kids to school, to go shopping, to meet friends, even to go on dates or take the dog for a walk. It is a city of motorbikes.

How did Hanoi become a motorbike society? And how does car ownership emerge in this context of two-wheeled dominance? These are some of the questions that my thesis has tried to answer.
