Support World Streets and the New Mobility Agenda

We have no money gentlemen, so we shall have to think.
– Ernest Rutherford, on taking over Cavendish Laboratory in 1919

World Streets is an independent  public interest publication of the Association EcoPlan International and the New Mobility Agenda made freely ws-write-check5available to all who are looking to understand, support, and contribute to the sustainability agenda anywhere in the world. We firmly believe that there should be no barriers, and especially not commercial ones, to the free circulation of ideas, news, tools  and peer exchanges when it comes to the important issues of sustainable development and social justice.  To ensure our full independence we do not accept advertising. We depend on the support of our readers, concerned public agencies, foundations and actors in the private sector to keep going. As of today, we can report 4,798 subscribers, from 149 countries.  That must mean something.

1. Suggested Guidelines for Donations

No money but care about sustainable transport and sustainable cities: Come on in. No problem. We're here for you. (You might wish to sign in for the weekly updates, top right menu)

Volunteer subscribers: EUR/USD 50.00 a year would be great.   If your circumstances permit, consider giving more. You can be sure your contribution will be well used.

Local associations:  (Same)

Cities/local government: EUR/USD 100.00. We woudl rather have one hundred cities at EUR 100 each, than one sponsor for EUR 10,000. 9You understand that of course.)

Libraries/documentation centers: (same would be good)

Transport operators/suppliers:  EUR/USD 200.00 (Or more if you can afford it and wish to show your support for our work.)

* ADVISORY &CONSULTING SERVICES/ NEW MOBILITY CONSULT. One way of looking at World Streets and its multiple networks, databases, archives, continuing research and professional activity in our chosen field is to see it as the tip of a very large "iceberg" of experience and competence. By making use of and supporting our consultancy and advisory services, you are helping us to fund and carry on with the free journal.

* LIBRARIES. You can contact your library, documentation center, agency or firm and ask them to sign up for an annual subscription.

* ENCOURAGE your city, public agency or private sector group to support World Streets.

* BOOK SUPPORT. Help us identify and contact foundations, public agencies, universities, think-tank  or other support for my book in progress - The Equity Initiative. (Key sections, themes of the book are being presented and reviewed in conferences and presentations over 2013/2014. Get in touch for schedule. As I move ahead on this project I am increasingly impressed by what Benjamin Disraeli had to offer on the subject almost two hundred years ago: The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write a book about it.)

Thank you for helping us to continue our work and contributions in 2013. We could not do it without you.

Eric Britton, Editor
