Streetfilms – Social Innovation for the Urban Environment

This is just one of many great films on the Streetfilms site.

Streetfilms has its roots in tackling transportation issues in NYC, but has grown and expanded to cover “complex issues like bus rapid transit, parking policy, police enforcement and the spatial inequity of the way our streets are divided” around the world, including Australia. These films are intended to both educate the public and influence policy makers by introducing them to new approaches and methods for making our urban environment more people and community friendly.

I think its also a great example of using rich media and the Web to help spread social innovation stories. Hat tip to Grant Young.
