The unimaginable happened in Suwon, South Korea: a neighborhood played the future: for the EcoMobility World Festival 2013, the 4,300 residents of the Haenggung-dong neighborhood removed their 1,500 cars from the quarter and lived an ecomobile lifestyle for a full month. "Neighborhood in Motion" portrays the process of the unique mise-en-scene from idea to implementation; the unprecedented cooperation of local government with community groups, local businesses, cities worldwide, and international agencies; the dedication of community volunteers to protect and defend a car-free neighborhood; and the happiness that pervaded the community as it enjoyed car-free streets and open spaces for the people. Stunning photos demonstrate how ugly, 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 condition for safe locomotion and dignity for elderly and handicapped. The Festival exalted imagination and encourages creativity by all. What can be learned from the EcoMobility Festival in order to replicate it in many cities elsewhere in the world?

The centers of many metropolises worldwide offer an image that is less than inviting, with forbidding office building facades, permanently congested main traffic arteries and a high level of pollution. The city of Johannesburg, the economic hub of South Africa, ran a daring experiment which showed alternative possibilities: as part of the EcoMobility World Festival, a hundred thousand commuters converted to ecomobility-for four weeks, private cars were replaced by public transport, bicycles and pedestrian traffic in the Sandton business district. Change the Way You Move! documents the EcoMobility World Festival 2015 and shares fascinating solutions to this challenge, as well as experiences and lessons learnt. What is especially inspiring is not just the dedicated cooperation between citizens and various stakeholders, but also the contribution of the festival to social integration and to the overcoming of spatial apartheid.

Assembling papers originally presented at the Resilient Cities 2011 Congress in Bonn, Germany (June 2011), the second global forum on cities and adaptation to climate change, this volume is the second in a series resulting from this annual event. These cutting-edge papers represent the latest research on the topic and reflect the intensification of the debate on the meaning of and interaction between climate adaptation, risk reduction and broader resilience. Thus, contributors offer more material related to resilience, such as water, energy and food security; green infrastructure; the role of renewables and ecosystem services; vulnerable communities and urban poor; and responsive financing for adaptation and multi-level governance. Overall, the book brings a number of different perspectives to bear on the most pressing issues and controversies surrounding climate change adaptation in cities. These papers will prove invaluable to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of urban resilience and contributing to tackling climate change at the local level.

Even with significant reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, a certain degree of climate change will inevitably occur. Adapting to climate change, then, will become a necessary step in reducing the vulnerability of many regions across the globe. This is especially true for urban areas where climate change has been shown to have particularly destabilizing effects. Through the identification and analysis of the most relevant impacts facing urban areas, this book makes clear the need to incorporate climate change concerns into the mainstream of local planning, governance and policy making practices. Adaptation as a workable concept within urban areas cannot be treated in isolation from the many pre-existing challenges facing cities. By offering numerous examples of ongoing adaptation programs and strategies across a wide range of contexts, the authors show the growing potential of cities in the fight against climate change. This book has its origins in a collection of papers originally presented at the Resilient Cities 2010 Congress in Bonn, Germany (May 2010), the first global forum on cities and adaptation to climate change, convened by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability. In this volume, the first in a new series dedicated to this annual event, a range of contributors bring their perspectives to bear on the most pressing issues and controversies surrounding adaptation to climate change within cities. These writings will prove invaluable to anyone interested in understanding and confronting climate change at the local level.
