Change Your World
Somehow this completely passed me by last year - Change Your World a Sustrans campaign about getting people to use their cars 10% less. Of course, car use actually dropped by 12% last year, though everyone seems to be saying that this was due to the economy going into free-fall. Or as our Prime Minister would put it, a depression.
Then again, maybe it was all down to Sustrans - either through brilliant little videos like this one, or perhaps they infiltrated the banking sector and engineered the current economic situation. We’ll never know. Though I’m fairly sure that it’s just a coincidence.
Here’s the vid - and in case you’re a pigeon fancier, I can report that I’m sure I read somewhere that no pigeons were actually harmed in making this film:
And in case you’re inspired to do this sort of 10% solution thing, but just can’t do it all by yourself, Change Your World week in 2009 is 29th June - 4th July.
