We’re exploring loads of options for getting around! Meet people who’ve made shifts and are enjoying themselves and local suppliers. We’re looking at: walking, running, public transport, skateboards, scooters, bikes, electric bikes, cargo bikes, electric cars, car share, car pooling, redefining work, holidays and adventure.

Come out and play!

The term sustainable transport came into use as a logical follow-on from sustainable development, and is used to describe modes of transport, and systems of transport planning, which are consistent with wider concerns of sustainability. This definition, from the European Union Council of Ministers of Transport, defines a sustainable transportation system as one that:

Allows the basic access and development needs of individuals, companies and society to be met safely and in a manner consistent with human and ecosystem health, and promotes equity within and between successive generations.

Is affordable, operates fairly and efficiently, offers a choice of transport mode, and supports a competitive economy, as well as balanced regional development.

Limits emissions and waste within the planet’s ability to absorb them, uses renewable resources at or below their rates of generation, and uses non-renewable resources at or below the rates of development of renewable substitutes, while minimising the impact on the use of land and the generation of noise.

There will be time to meet other like minded people and feel the energy of a connected community.

This is FREE event; but it’s essential that you book your spot HERE.
