10 June 2012: Note to the visitor:
In 1994 when the idea was first put broached from an international perspective, there were zero national CFD programs on the planet. Five years later there was a first handful. And today, there are close to two dozen and counting.
As you can see in considerable detail from the information and links in this site, the number and quality of car free day projects and programs is rapidly expanding. In many ways Europe has taken the lead, but not all. Over the last several years there has been a growing wave of interest and activity in car free days of a much more ambitious type in other parts of the world. There is also a growing variety of approaches and ways of organizing, which is all very much to the good.
In this section of the site you have one-click access to all of the national C/FD programs known to us to this date. The several countries where "placeholder" is indicated, are places in which activity is increasing and we have been contacted by groups indicating their intention to create some kind of national grouping.
Note: These groupings are not by any means homogeneous in terms of their organization. Some are ad hoc. Some have been spun off by national energy or environmental agencies, others are purely locally inspired and ad hoc. you will see in each case as you enter the site.
