Step Away from The Car: Getting There Faster by Slowing Down: For over a century, we’ve been told that Faster Is Better, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Associate Professor Paul Tranter goes as far to as to contend that over reliance on cars steals our time, money and health. Slowing down whole cities can improve public health, drop infrastructure costs and increase our sense of community.
Nicky talks about her observations of the 2019 AWC conference, cycling advocacy initiatives, the importance of community radio and how to keep Radio Adelaide on air by donating to their campaign to raise $50,000 by 10 January 2020.
