When i was doing my project on my Grandfather i learned that he liked tinkering on bikes. The saying "Another mans trash is some mans treasure" in which is true. My Grandfather went to the dump when he was a kid and got parts for his own bike. It cost him absolutley nothing and it gave him transport. When my bike broke i went to the junkyard and i got a pretty good bike that last me for 6 years till i out grew it. I think that the junkyard is a playground for parts. You can almost find anything in the junkyard and still be good. But not hust for books but also for cars, skate baords and alot of other things. So the junkyard basically is a Mobil Rights mechanical station. So visit your local junkrard and see what you can find and Ram up your mobile rights.
Transportation Challenge #1
Getting around should be Easy, Affordable, and Healthy - for everyone. Share a creative expression of what you value about these mobility rights!
Vermonters spend more than $1.5 billion on gas. Cars and Trucks account for almost half of our carbon footprint.
Darlings, no matter who you are, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness becomes whole a lot trickier when traveling around is expensive, inconvenient, or a real pain in the posterior. This challenge is a chance to reconsider what transportation should be for everyone: fun, accessible, and healthy - without costing an arm and a leg! So whether it's a drawing, a song, or a witty little meme, let's give a refreshing boost to what we value about transportation!
- Pick one of the "Mobility Rights" that most appeals to you - maybe an area that you'd like to improve in your life.
- Create a work of art (drawing, song, dance, wall mural, totem pole) which represents what it looks, sounds, or feels like to you.
- Share it in the box below!
We try to accentuate the positive, but if you'd prefer to focus on what your community needs...
- Is there a transportation issue, conundrum, or problem in your community that you'd like most to fix?
- What is it, and how would you fix it?
- Please share this information with a pinch of creative expression!
If you're stuck, start moving around!
