This event is organised by Green Drinks, a monthly get together of environmentally minded folk.
This month we’re celebrating Biketober and we’ll be hearing from Meg Christie, an active transport, community and public health promoter. Meg works on projects that enable disadvantaged communities to travel by active transport more.
When she started in the role 10 years ago, the focus was mainly on the physical health benefits as well as on improvements to air quality and reduced congestion.
Now there is a more holistic approach which realises the mental well-being, social capital and economic benefits that come from active transport and, most importantly, the way it can mitigate the effects of climate change.
