Active Travel Within Galway City and County
June 27th | 6-8pm | Online Event
You are invited to join the 3rd meeting from the series Galway Active Travel.
This is the third meeting around Galway Active Travel. Like for the previous meetings, the aim is to continue the conversations and bring together groups and individuals who are passionate about creating a Galway City and County that are accessible for all active travel.
Some of the strong themes that emerged from the two previous meetings are:
- road safety and how those most at risk in the event of a collision should be prioritised according to the hierarchy of road users;
- universal and accessible design and how this should be incorporated into city planning to accommodate the widest range of potential users;
- the need for prioritisation of pedestrians and active travel road users, to make it easier for active travel to become more than a leisure activity, but a reliable, safe and sustainable way of commuting.
- using social media to influence decision-makers, lobby councillors and raise awareness.
During the May meetings, the attendees also built on their knowledge and interests to help shape the identity and strategy of the group.
Galway City Community Network and Galway County PPN are hosting this series of meetings to facilitate a collective voice for active travel and public transport users.
We imagine a place where people of all ages and abilities, including blue-badge drivers, disabled people, people with infants and young children, walkers, joggers, people on bikes, trikes and scooters and bus and train users can all move with ease and be treated with respect.
Universally accessible active travel and public transport that will benefit all residents is a vital part of a just transition and a people-centred place to live work and visit.
