WCD: Munich

parking_day(2)Munich’s first WCD in 2000 was organised by Green City who presented the Streetlife Festival, a big carfree street party on one of city’s main boulevards. The second Streetlife Festival took place in September this year and again received a huge attendance, with more than 150,000 visitors. People enjoyed live music, food and, most importantly, were informed about sustainable transportation and innovative use of urban spaces. In addition, Green City participated in a PARK(ing) DAY, where 16 separate parking areas in downtown Munich were transformed into public green spaces where passersby could relax, have a drink or a snack and chat. The message was clear: Less cars make room for more green in Munich!
