Transport to tackle our climate challenge: online forum

Join us for an online forum to hear from Bendigo locals about transport issues and solutions in the face of climate change and COVID-normal.


Transport is the second largest and fastest growing contributor to emissions in Victoria, and Bendigo is already experiencing the consequences of climate change such as bushfires, heatwaves and droughts.

How can we plan for more active and public transport in our communities to reduce emissions and make our neighbourhoods more liveable? .... safer bike paths, wider footpaths and accessible public transport must be a top priority.

Hear from locals about how climate change is impacting the Bendigo community, as well as initiatives for local sustainable transport solutions.

And learn about Melbourne-based active transport plans, including the 40kms of separated bike lanes recently commenced in the city. 

Speakers:

Nicola Dunnicliff- Wells - President of Bike Bendigo

Chris Corr - Vice President and Infrastructure Coordinator of Bike Bendigo

Dr. Crystal Legacy - Senior Lecturer in Urban Planning at the University of Melbourne

Trevor Budge - Former Manager of Regional Sustainable Development at the City of Greater Bendigo

Oscar Hayes - Senior Strategic Planner at the City of Melbourne
