How To Save the World in 10 Days is a festival organized by the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, curated to document and celebrate a range of innovations, visions, ecological ideas and socio-political dystopias.

The exhibition warns you, from the start, that it doesn’t represent the answer or the final fail-proof recipe, which can be witnessed in the video above. The video shows a ride in the Shared Propulsion Car, one of artist Michel de Broin’s projects.

The artist and a group of people get the pedal-driven car out on the street alright, but don’t get very far as they are pulled over by Toronto cops for driving a risky motor vehicle dangerous to traffic as it only travels 15km per hour. Very bizarre.
