Conference on active transportation pushes walking, cycling -- September 27, 2004 -- peaceful communities, 27 Sept 2004 [cached]
Bjorn Nielsen, a Peterborough-based consultant with the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Recreation, is also the national chair of Go For Green. Go For Green is a Canadian non-profit organization with a mission to encourage outdoor physical activity that protects, enhances or restores the environment. The group was a major contributor to the event in Victoria.
Bjorn says the Canadian caucus' recommendation was to develop a national active transportation action plan with dedicated funding and specific measurable milestones, to double before 2010 the number of people walking and cycling in their daily lives.
While noting Peterborough has taken real steps in promoting active transportation, including the City hiring a transportation demand management planner, he says there are many trends pushing this along across the nation.
"There are a number of converging trends that are occurring," says Nielsen, which reflects the growing interest across the continent in getting people to be more active.
"Our overuse of the automobile is one such fact, as it creates gridlock in metropolitan centres. We've engineered ourselves away from physical activity" by taking up a great deal of desirable room that could be used for cycling and walking, he explains.
