OUR ACTIVE TRANSPORT RAFFLE IS LIVE!
Active Transport is cycling, walking or catching the bus (which could 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 electricity, transport emissions will represent more than 60% 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, places of entertainment and social interactions without a car;
- make Canberra an active transport hub;
- boost active transport tourism in the ACT region.
We have three great prizes up for grabs, including a brand new e-bike valued at $1,800. Check out our Active Transport Raffle page for more details and buy tickets!
The Active Transport Raffle will be drawn on the 1st of Jun 2019 at our World Environment Day Dinner at the National Museum of Australia. Details of the Winners will be displayed at www.conservationcouncil.org.au/active-transport-raffle-2019/ and contacted by email and phone!
We would like to thank our fantastic sponsors, Switched On Cycles, Canberra Urban Adventures, and Civic Shoes. We are so lucky to have such forward-thinking and sustainability-oriented businesses in the ACT! Give their pages a like and see what else they have in store for your active transport needs.
