Op-Eds: World Streets Invited Opinion Pieces

* * * Click here to check out all Op-Ed postings to date. * * * __________________________________________________

Op-Ed pieces are generally invited by the editors, but are also open to volunteer contributors. In the latter case we would ask you first to send on a short email outlining your intended piece in a few short sentences, so that we can save you time in the event that it does not lie not with our immediate priorities. Once we have your outline in hand, we can get back in touch with you to discuss eventual next steps.

It is vital that these contributions stick closely to the defined objectives and mission statement of World Streets And the New Mobility Agenda. As a reminder we invite you to click here.

Ideal length is 300 to 500 words, although in special cases this can be taken up to a maximum of 1000 words.

We asked that the tone, including of the comments to each piece, be informed, polite and collegial.

Comments are very welcome and should be made in the slot available for each at the base of the article in question.

A rich body of op-ed pieces has recently been collected over the last weeks as part of our collaborative project" Messages for America", for which you can find full details here. A number of these are being selected for presentation under this heading.
