Car Free Day in Hastings, 2019

Hastings’s first Car Free Day took place on Global Car Free Day, on 22 September 2019. I was the lead project manager and main point of contact with the local council and other stakeholders.

The event was an opportunity to work with the local community to put into practice a variety of ideas: public participation in public space, reclaiming space, attempting to challenge the current system and create a space for discussion and shared visions of the future. The working group wanted to challenge the ‘normal’ of a busy seafront road.
