A neighborhood turns car and motorcycle-free. Its residents try out an ecomobile lifestyle: they walk, cycle, use small electric vehicles, try an autonomous minibus and the new tramway. It so happened in the Hamasen neighborhood in Kaohsiung, second-largest city on Taiwan. Ecomobility is economical and environmentally friendly. Ecomobility is the prerequisite for a livable city with streets for people, not cars. But how feels ecomobility like? How do new mobility habits emerge? How do residents experience their quarter free of cars and motorcycles?
Going Green documents the mise-en-scène in the framework of the EcoMobility World Festival organized by the city of Kaohsiung in partnership with ICLEI in October 2017. Authors and photographer accompany citizens on their trips through the city before and—then ecomobile—during the experiment. The publication shows these stories, and thereby conveys the fascination of a new, future urban mobility.
