Why active transport?
Active Transport is cycling, walking or catching the bus (which would involve both cycling and walking in the same trip). Promoting active transport has both health and environmental benefits due to increased physical activity, reduced air and noise pollution, and decreased greenhouse gas emissions.
The ACT government has a target of achieving net zero carbon emissions for the ACT by 2045. From 2020 onwards, when ACT will have 100% renewable energy, transport emissions will represent more than 60 per cent of all ACT emissions. There is an urgent need to reduce car dependence in Canberra and to remove fossil fuel usage from the transport sector.
The Active Transport Raffle will assist Conservation Council work to:
- help ensure all Canberrans can travel to work, the shops, their educational institutions, placed of entertainment and social interactions without a car;
- make Canberra an active transport hub;
- boost active transport tourism in the ACT region.
