Look - what a difference bikes and transit can make, instead of driving! These images are a wonderful graphic depiction of what Undriving is working to do: shift our thinking about what's possible, and build awareness of how our daily choices make a difference - in our own lives as well as our collective experience.
As we enter a New Year, what's YOUR Undriving resolution? Start biking in the winter, walk everywhere within a mile, sell a car? For me, after 6-1/2 years of driving Undriving, I am passing the torch to my colleague Mike Schachter and Undriving's Board of Directors.
I am grateful to each and every one of you who made an Undriving pledge, got licensed to Undrive, and/or furthered this effort in other ways. Together we've made quite a splash - since 2007 we've licensed more than 13,000 Undrivers at over 100 events throughout the region; garnered local, national and international attention and awards; fostered community through social media; and most importantly, put our Undriver Licensing™ program into the hands Official Licensing Partners - two so far, Intercity Transit and Sound Transit. We're delighted that these two agencies are licensing their own Undrivers as a part of their community outreach efforts - and hopefully, they will be joined by many more!
It's been an honor, a challenge, and a rich learning experience to bring this idea into being and see it take on a life of its own. I've been inspired by your creative and resourceful pledges, your stories, and the amazing people on the Undriving team. Wishing you and Undriving all the best!
Thanks for Undriving,
Julia Field, Founder and Program Director
