Via RecreActiva: Transforming the Streets of Guadalajara
Streetfilms | January 12, 2012
In the latest video from Streetfilms, Clarence Eckerson, Jr. documents how the Mexican city of Guadalajara has enlivened its roadways with a weekly program called Via RecreActiva. By closing streets to vehicular traffic the city hopes to encourage healthy and active recreation in public spaces. With support from the local business community, this cultural program has grown and flourished over the past seven years. It is a municipal policy innovation being copied globally to improve health and air quality through exercise and lower emissions.
