The unimaginable happened in Suwon, South Korea: a neighborhood played the future: for the EcoMobility World Festival 2013, the 4,300 residents of the Haenggung-dong neighborhood removed their 1,500 cars from the quarter and lived an ecomobile lifestyle for a full month. "Neighborhood in Motion" portrays the process of the unique mise-en-scene from idea to implementation; the unprecedented cooperation of local government with community groups, local businesses, cities worldwide, and international agencies; the dedication of community volunteers to protect and defend a car-free neighborhood; and the happiness that pervaded the community as it enjoyed car-free streets and open spaces for the people. Stunning photos demonstrate how ugly, dusty and noisy streets were converted into livable spaces. And how the absence of 1,500 empty metal cages from the streets freed up opportunities for community-building and neighborhood dialogue, and provided condition for safe locomotion and dignity for elderly and handicapped. The Festival exalted imagination and encourages creativity by all. What can be learned from the EcoMobility Festival in order to replicate it in many cities elsewhere in the world?
