Our workplace has regular lunchtime speakers who share their knowledge. In my new position as Active Transport Officer I had the opportunity to speak and present photographs this week. The hour-long “Lunch and Learn” session was a good way for other employees understand my role, get to know me and help support measures to increase active travel in our wider community. It was done via an on-line format so all employees had access including those working remotely.
How blank walls on the ground floor of buildings can make streets uninviting for walking if car parking is not put underground.
The importance of tree planting on the sides of streets instead of central medians so people walking and cycling can enjoy some shade.
There were also some simple tips for first-timers or people who haven’t considered active transport for a long time. Such as: it’s now legal for adults to cycle on footpaths in Western Australia, and Google Maps has live bus-tracking which makes it easy to know which bus-stop to use when you get close to your destination.
