Understand Parking Day’s Event
During Mobility Week, 16-22 of September, thousands of organizations around the world perform actions to raise awareness in traffic and make life in cities more sustainable. But one date in particular mobilizes not only organizations but also communities, schools and citizens: the Park(ing) Day.
Every year, people from different cultures take care of parking spaces and transform it in a mini park in an attempt to make the population and the government more aware of the need for cities more vivid and less cars.
Parking Day this year will be held on September 20th and is already taking shape. On the campaign website you can download The Parking Day Lincense and the Parking Day Manual to begin arranging your own campaign. You’ll just need to choose a parking spot and fill it with artistic attractions.
