e-Rideable workshop

Aimee Kontor
City of Swan

The City of Swan recently ran the workshop 'Speed date an e-Rideable' as part of the free community sustainable living series, Thinking Green.

Registrations were relatively low resulting in a small group on the day. However, the attendees were enthusiastic and engaged, keen to find out more and test the e-Rideables, with interest split pretty evenly between eScooters and eBikes.

The workshop covered what equipment is currently legal in WA and the rules that apply, the suitability of different e-Rideables, the impact e-Rideables have on reducing carbon footprint when commuting. It aimed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to test the e-scooters, e-bike and e-cargo bike present, and further their interest.

Feedback was overwhelmingly positive with one participant submitting written feedback praising the presenter and saying it was a "fabulous workshop".

We will look into how to attract more registrations and run more workshops on the topic (e.g. by changing the target audience, content, format, venue and promotion) and consider booking more workshops and sharing more information on this topic. We would love to hear what other local governments are doing in this space.

Hi Aimee - despite the numbers, it sounds like a very worthwhile workshop. I would imagine that something like this would become more and more popular.
