Europe’s smoggiest city has decided to un-car itself

The city is Barcelona. In the early 20th century, it was redesigned to make it a convenient buzzalong for cars, in the name of progress. Now, it is to be re-redesigned to reverse this concept.

Carrying the plan through will be expensive, and take ten years, but they have already implemented bits of it. While there is some opposition from vested interests, the overwhelming majority of the city’s population are looking forward to breathing again.

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
