Government Trying To Have A Buck Each Way On Transport - Media release

Living Streets Aotearoa, the national walking advocacy group, has welcomed some good news for pedestrians in the new Emissions Reduction Plan, but called on the Government to act faster and go further to decarbonise transport. Living Streets Aotearoa Vice-President Tim Jones said “In the race to decarbonise our society and economy by 2050, the years between now and 2030 are crucial, because that’s when the steepest emissions reductions need to happen. And transport, especially in cities, is the sector we can decarbonise fastest – but only if we take the right steps.”

Call for an Aotearoa New Zealand Walking Strategy

Living Streets Aotearoa is calling on the Government to develop a New Zealand Walking Strategy. We are faced with many global and local issues that would be improved if more people walked more often and yet there is no coordinated action to increase walk mode share or maintain the current conditions for pedestrians. Living Streets wants to see Government step up in a coordinated cross-agency way to improve walking and the place of pedestrians in policy, plans and action to benefit society and the places we live. We urgently need a future focused Aotearoa New Zealand Walking Strategy.

Sad news today

We are all reeling today from the news that President of Living Streets Aotearoa, Andy Smith has died. Our walking tõtara has fallen.

He was such a collaborative person with many interests and friends that we know this will affect many of you. Andy really committed himself to the common good as well as having fun along the way. 

He always said we are here for the long haul, and so we will continue on our path. 

We will let you know when we have any details about funeral arrangements.
