1 March 2012: Helsinki Equity/Transport project kicks-off

Today is the opening day of the 2012 Helsinki Equity-Based Transportation peer review program, the first in what we hope will become a growing thread of cooperating  city projects querying the impact of first reviewing and eventually restructuring our city and regional transportation systems around the fundamental core principle of equity. You will find details on the EBT site at http://equitytransport.wordpress.com/ starting at noon today.

Would you like to get involved as a reviewer, critic, informal work partner on the project as it unfolds. If so drop a note to me at eric.britton@ecoplan.org, Skype newmobility or Tel +331 7550 3788 and we can figure out together how to do this most efficiently.

Again, our shared goal is to query what happens in terms of not only equity (already a monumental issue and concern) but also efficiency, environment and economy when the equity principle is put at the center of the strategy.

It will be good to hear from you.
