One Planet Theme: SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT

A range of speakers will update us on what’s happening with regard to public transport, cycling infrastructure and walking activities in our region.

Keynote Speakers:

Cr Andy Richards, City of Greater Geelong – Active transport policy & funding

Paul Westcott, Public Transport Users Association Geelong – Public transport

Ash Patten, President BikeSafe Geelong – Cycling infrastructure & safety 

Active (sustainable) transport is about much more than encouraging people to use public transport. It’s about reducing carbon emissions in all modes of transport, offering more diverse transport options and putting people first in urban design so that we create more liveable cities, more resilient neighbourhoods, more connected communities and citizens who are healthier and happier.
