Publisher's description: For the EcoMobility World Festival 2013, the 4,300 residents of the Haenggung-dong neighborhood in Suwon, South Korea, agreed to stop using their cars for a month, removing their vehicles from the quarter and living an "ecomobile" lifestyle. Neighborhood in Motion documents this bold experiment from conception to implementation. It looks at the unprecedented cooperation of local government with community groups, local businesses, cities worldwide and international agencies; the dedication of community volunteers to establishing and maintaining a car-free neighborhood; and the happiness that pervaded the community as it enjoyed car-free streets and open spaces for all, for this brief period. Photographs demonstrate how dusty and noisy streets were converted into livable spaces, and how the absence of 1,500 empty metal cages from the streets freed up opportunities for community-building and neighborhood dialogue, and provided the conditions for safe locomotion and dignity for the elderly and the handicapped.
