Melbourne and Wodonga are just two of the places to be part of the StreetFilms series. The mission of StreetFilms is to document liveable streets best practice throughout the world and enlighten the general public that their streets can be safer for pedestrians and bicycles. The ultimate goal is to encourage more human-friendly cities and rethink the way our streets are allocated.
StreetFilms does this by making sometimes complex traffic and transportation concepts simpler by using video, animations, and language that the public can understand. They can also be frequently humorous. The productions are used as Creative Commons tools the world over by communities and advocacy organizations to fight for better conditions in their neighbourhoods. StreetFilms is part of the Livable Streets Network which includes sister sites Streetsblog and StreetsWiki. It is well worth a browse: www.streetfilms.org.
