Are you a parent? Part of a community group? A sporting club? A school community? Local government? Health sector? Transport sector? Fitness industry?
Join a vast range of Southern Grampians community members and share your ideas to get our community moving!
Anyone and everyone is warmly welcomed to the upcoming active transport workshop, to provide valuable insights, experiences and views on active transport across our region.
So what exactly is active transport? Active Transport includes walking, cycling, skating, skateboarding and any incidental activity associated with the use of transport. Currently, only 25% of Southern Grampians children use active transport to get to/from school, and just 46% meet the recommended physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes per day.
During the upcoming session on Thursday 29th November, we’ll investigate influences on our local children utilising active transport - what helps or hinders kids walking, riding or scooting to and/from school? Secondly, we’ll put our heads together and generate some ideas to create a Southern Grampians environment/culture that welcomes and encourages active transport. Increasing rates of active transport is just one way to increase our children’s physical activity levels and improve their health status!
Please circulate this event invite to anyone you think may be interested. A diverse range of participants are needed to piece together ideas that will get off the ground! Your own perspective, insight and support is greatly appreciated.
