Living Streets Aotearoa has joined the Vote Climate campaign because the importance of walking as climate action is a key part of our kaupapa.
Vote Climate brings together a coalition of groups to call on local body election candidates to support low-carbon transport options: walking, cycling and public transport.
We're excited to be working together towards a great outcome for people and planet this election. Getting out to vote is one of the most important actions any of us can take to care for the things we love, and helping others along the journey makes your impact even greater.
