The Conservation Council, in conjunction with Pedal Power, Public Transport Association CBR, Living Streets Canberra and the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (ACT Branch), hosted our first online Election Forum on Sustainable Transport on Tuesday 15th September at 5.30pm.
Transport emissions contribute 60% to the ACT’s direct greenhouse emissions, primarily through the use of petrol and diesel vehicles. Our transport choices have a significant impact on our environment, the liveability of our city, and our productivity, health and wellbeing. We need to build a strong public transport network and enable active transport as a viable and attractive option for commuters, reduce emissions from use of cars, and transition to an electrified transport system.
Speakers at this event included:
Chris Steel MLA, ALP, Candidate for Murrumbidgee and Minister for Transport
Emma Davidson, Greens, Candidate for Murrumbidgee
Candice Burch MLA, Canberra Liberals, Candidate for Kurrajong and Shadow Minister for Transport
Robert Knight, Canberra Progressives, Candidate for Murrumbidgee.
