Are you one of those people who would prefer not to have a car but aren’t quite sure how life would work without one? Or maybe you’re just dreaming of ways to be greener but don’t have a clue how you can change the way you live? I have a couple of copies of “Do Humans Dream of Electric Cars?” to give away to two EcoStreet readers who would like to know more about liberating themselves from our car culture. To stand a chance of winning a copy, please leave a comment about your favourite form of transport. The draw will take place on the 31st of July 2009. Winners will be contacted by email.
Do Humans Dream of Electric Cars? is a fun book using lively illustrations and some pretty cool art to demonstrate the many alternatives to the car as a form of transportation. There are plenty of positive ideas for individuals, organisations and communities at large to lessen their impact on our planet. The book has a UK bias, but some of the statistics aside, it is as relevant to the South Africa driver as it is to the British, even more so now that we’re going to be getting some pretty fantastic new public transport in the form of the BRT.
Do Humans Dream of Electric Cars? is published by award winning green publisher Alistair Sawday in association with Sustrans, the UK’s leading sustainable transport charity.
