Norway's Capital Will Be Car-free

Europe has been making some some fascinating moves towards fundamentally changing how its society functions, from Sweden experimenting with 6-hour working days, cashlessness, and becoming the world’s first fossil fuel-free country, to Finland ditching a subject-based curriculum for an education system based on topics of interest.

Now it looks like one of the staples of the last century - cars - are on the outs, with Norway announcing that its capital will be permanently car-free by 2019.

The news comes just weeks after cars were banned from the Paris CBD for a day in an effort to give its citizens a rest from the "noise, pollution, and stress". Organised as part of European Mobility Week last month, the initiative saw 246 cities, towns, and boroughs from 14 countries across Europe sign up to go carless for a day, including Budapest in Hungary, Lisbon in Portugal, and Stockholm in Sweden.
