I'd just like to add a few details to this earlier announcement:
- Participants must be aged 18 to 30 and should be citizens or residents of the European Union.
- Participants will receive 20% off Towards Carfree Cities conference registration, as well as 70% of return travel costs, so it's a great way to get to the conference affordably.
- The deadline for applications is 27 April.
- Please spread the word to anyone who you think might be interested.
By the way, we've recently emailed everyone who has ever attended a Towards Carfree Cities conference or World Carfree Network international event. If you did not receive that email, please send me your email address so we can update our records. We also have a Facebook Group 'Towards Carfree Cities IX - York 2010' that you can join.
Youth Exchange in York, June 23-26
"3E by World Carfree Network Europe – A capacity building seminar for young NGO leaders to equip, encourage and to empower the youth on their rights and role as citizens in a democracy."
What this means in practice is 30 young people interested in equality, environment, urban planning and sustainable transport gathering in York, UK, for four days of workshops, seminars and discussions.
During these days we will present and discuss the theory about the traffic power hierarchy. A structuralist way of looking at the city and the problems with cars and automobility. The participants will be working round this topic in small groups, exploring the city of York and in the end of the seminar each group are going to present one example of the traffic power hierarchy that they have found on the streets.
Our intention is that the participants will learn a new way of understanding and working with transport issues in their home cities and develop their thoughts around the topic.
The participation fee is 50 €, 100 % of the accommodation and food costs and 70 % of the travel costs will be covered.

If you would like to attend please send a motivation letter and an estimate of your travel costs to info <at> worldcarfree.net
