Car Free Day

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Bandra and Khar residents will be delighted to know that the effects of the Environmental summit at Copenhagen have been felt right here. There will be a Car Free Day on the 21st of February wherein the stretch from Otter’s Club to Khar Danda will have no cars traveling on it. This is to check carbon emissions from cars. The committee members of the KBS foundation, together with the residents of the area have decided to organize the Car Free Day in order to curb pollution.

The residents feel that cars are the most polluting vehicles and in line with other international cities like Bogota, Columbia, which have car free days, the residents also want to keep a day free of cars for the city.

On the 21st of February, only one lane will be open for BEST buses and ambulances. The committee members feel that they need to attract crowds for their mission at Carter Road to participate in activities planned for that day.

The committee members feel that they need to reduce travel by cars and private vehicles. Instead, the residents feel that they should resort to cycling as a mode of transport and have requested the traffic police to create tracks for cycling.

According to some residents, cars are the biggest pollutants and Mumbaiites should try to reduce the use of private vehicles. The traffic policemen of the area feel that this is a viable option to control pollution, and that it should be replicated in other cities as well.

Pollution and climate change pose a serious hazard to the environment and the flop show at the Copenhagen Summit shows that the situation is only worsening. So, if we want sustainable solutions for us and future generations, we have to check our carbon emissions now.

Celebrate Bandra | Celebrate Bandra Festival Events | Venues for Celebrate Bandra Festival

Celebrate Bandra

Celebrate Bandra Festival happens once every two years in Bandra. Celebrate Bandra is initiated by the Celebrate Bandra Trust and Fountainhead Promotions & Events Pvt. Ltd.

Celebrate Bandra is a two-week long festival and people from in and around Bandra get together to Celebrate Bandra. It is a unique celebration of culture, dance, music and overall entertainment. Celebrate Bandra started with a few individuals coming together with organizers to Celebrate the very rich, vibrant and colourful life in Bandra, the heart of Mumbai. Celebrate Bandra Festival started in November 2003 and it was liked by all Bandraites and non Bandraites.

This year, the festival – Celebrate Bandra will be held from November 14th to November 29th 2009. Each festival has a theme: in 2007 it was Heritage and in 2005, Education. This year the theme of the Celebrate Bandra festival is Bandra’s Environment.

Unlike many other suburbs, Bandra’s geography is clearly defined by its coastline to the west, and the railway line to the east. Also it is the first suburb on the western seafront, all of which give it its very own identity.

In Celebrate Bandra 2009 festival, the Environment will embrace primarily its natural surroundings, of which the coast is the jewel in its crown.

Celebrate Bandra  Festival Venues – the main venues for the Bandra Festival are the two popular promenades, Carter Road and Bandstand, along with the Fort amphitheatre .

Invitation for Film Screening (on benefits of cycling) at Carter Road Bandra

Friday, May 29th, 2009

KBS Foundation invites you for a public film screening on “Role of non- polluting, “Active Modes of Transportation” in creating a green city”.

Climate change is not fiction any more. It is palpable. We have been witnessing warmer summers over the years. Accelerated climate change is a result of human actions. Highest contribution to green house gas emissions are by thermal power plants followed by transport related emissions and building activity. Therefore, intelligent, appropriate and green solutions to urban transport will play an important role in cleaning and greening our habitat.

We will concern ourselves in this meeting with the benefits that “Active Transportation” especially using bicycles for everyday journeys can bring for our habitats and us.

The films:

1. Ciclovia

For the past 10 years Bogota , the capital of Colombia , makes 120 km of road “automobile free” every Sunday between 7am – 2pm for the citizens to come outdoors and enjoy the streets. Produced by StreetFilms (www.streetfilms. org).

2. New York Summer Streets Program

Last year, the New York City Department of Transportation held its first Summer Streets event on Saturday by opening 7 miles of city streets to pedestrians and bike traffic only. From 7 AM to 1 PM, roads were car-free from 72nd Street to the Brooklyn Bridge with Park Avenue serving as the backbone of the route. Produced by StreetFilms  (www.streetfilms. org).

3. Cycle friendly cities/Program’ s-Velib,DC Bike Sharing,Rethinking

These films do a great job of showing the many benefits of cycling-friendly cities shows how a commitment to designing cities that are people-oriented, not car-oriented, can make urban residents happier, healthier, and more environmentally responsible.

 

Program:

Date:    30th May 2009 (Saturday)

Time:    6.30-8.30pm

Venue: Carter Rd Amphitheater, Bandra (West)
