The home page of the Carfree Institute
J.H. Crawford, author of Carfree Cities and Carfree Design Manual, is working to establish a bricks-and-mortar institute for the study of issues relating to carfree cities. It had long been thought that World Carfree Network would eventually establish such an institute, but this has not materialized.
Crawford is therefore seeking to establish the institute in a carfree district. Following an exploratory trip to Bhaktapur, Nepal, in the fall of 2013, it was decided to establish the institute in this beautiful, fascinating, intact medieval city that is substantially carfree. For various reasons, the institute will not be established as a formal organization but wil be an informal undertaking under the leadership of J.H. Crawford
Young people from the local community will be recruited and will learn a wide range of useful skills, including:
Progress updates will be posted here periodically. If you are interested in this project, please direct mail to J.H. Crawford at Carfree.com by typing this address in your mail program:
