Atlanta Streets Alive celebrates human powered movement Sunday, May 19
With the City's support, we're planning to grow to three events this year.
Tentative fall dates: Sunday, September 8 (Peachtree plus!) and Sunday, October 6 (return to Highland!)
Atlanta Streets Alive is about closing streets to cars and opening them to the public — for 4 hours — to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience.
The idea originated in Bogotá, Columbia, where neighborhood activists opened the streets for people to bike, skate, or use any human powered means of transportation, while temporarily closing them to motor vehicles. In Bogotá today, 70 miles of streets are opened to the public from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday. Amazingly, over 800,000 people – young and old, on foot, bike, and every imaginable kind of wheeled device – take part each week!
How to Participate:
1) Share the video!
2) Check out the interactive activity finder map.
3) Invite friends, family and neighbors to reach our goal of 30,000 people out on 3 miles of Atlanta’s Peachtree Street via Facebook event.
5) Share pictures from the day on social media or flickr.
