Campaign for sustainable transport

There are many ideas around that promote more sustainable methods of transport, including walking, cycling and using public transport. Moreland City Council has lots of ideas on their website: http://www.moreland.vic.gov.au/environment-and-waste/home_sustainable-transport.html

There are many groups campaigning for better public transport, not more roads. Check out what they are doing and see how you can help. See Public Transport not Traffic http://www.publictransportnottraffic.org/. They also have a list of local groups under “Our supporters”. In Moreland, you can join Moreland Community against the East-West Tunnel. https://www.facebook.com/MorelandCAT

The Walking School Bus is an initiative that encourages kids to walk to school in a group, accompanied by an adult. Can you start one for your kids’school? See http://www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/wsb. Another initiative directed at school kids is the Ride2School program. See https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/general/programs/179/

There are many Bicycle Clubs or Bicycle Users Groups in Melbourne, such as Moreland Bicycle Users Group (http://www.morelandbug.org/) Join one to campaign for better conditions for cyclists. Find your local group at https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/find/club/. You can help children develop their bike riding skills at Bike Ed.

Remember, sharing is caring and you wouldn’t want your family, friends and neighbours to miss out on all the fun, would you…
