This Watching Brief for Sustainable Penang already contains several hundred articles, charts and references in support of the uphill battle for a sustainable city served by an equitable and efficient sustainable mobility system, and is being added to steadily. Understandably we need to find ways to make this mass of materials more efficiently available to our readers.
In the not too recent past, librarians developed a coding system so that the public can find a quick way to put their fingers on the sources they are looking for. Until recently, the most popular means for doing this is the famous Dewey Decimal System. But the age of the internet offers other possibilities.
To this end most of the postings that appear in these pages are “tagged” for your convenience, that is marked with a keyword indicator that is intended to make it easier for you to find references that may be of use to you. Tags provide a useful way to group related posts together and to quickly tell readers what a post is about. The tags in each case appear just under the date and to the left of the title of the article.
Here you have the 32 main tags used to date. If you click each you will be taken to the articles and references under that heading.
- Action proposals
- Car Free
- City cycling
- Civil Society
- Land use
- Public transport
- Vulnerable populations
