TCAT is proud to announce “It’s Your Move”, a new strategic partnership with Metrolinx to identify and promote active transportation champions from across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
Originally proposed as a recommendation in TCAT’s “The Other 25%: Active Transportation Investment and The Big Move” report, this initiative will work to educate and build broad and deep awareness across the region about the importance of active transportation investment and the role of walking and cycling networks in supporting successful transit expansion in the GTHA. It will create a platform for active transportation champions to communicate the environmental, health, economic and social benefits of active transportation as an integrated component of a regional transportation system through their own experiences with walking and cycling. With a goal of promoting champions who represent a diversity of communities, TCAT will engage new audiences and nurture local support for investment in active transportation in the Big Move. This initiative is an exciting step forward for TCAT to expand and build on our history of recognizing active transportation leadership with our annual Active Transportation Champion award.
Please take a moment to tell us about leaders in your community who are making a difference to improve active transportation! We are particularly interested in finding candidates who are great speakers and represent the diversity of residents in the regions of Halton, York, Peel, Durham and the City of Hamilton. Please complete a very short survey by February 3, 2014 here.
