You are invited to an evening of information and conversation about how we might transform transport within, into and out of Heidelberg.
Transition Banyule is hosting a community transport forum with particular focus on Heidelberg. The objective of this forum is to imagine and energise a transformation in the way the we move about our suburb.
One principal of the Transition Towns movement is to take responsibility for our own actions rather than wait for government (of all levels) to act on our behalf. So the forum conversations will be encouraged to explore ideas that we can progress ourselves, rather than action that is outside our control.
The forum will begin with a brief presentation by Frank Fisher as a catalyst for the group discussions.
The remainder of the forum will involve working in groups generating ideas and plans.
By the conclusion of the evening we will have converged on a small number of amazing ideas and some agreed next steps for action.
Friends of Banyule and other community groups have been working on transport issues in Heidelberg for many years and their understanding of community needs will be an invaluable input to the conversation.
Our expectation is that when community behaviour changes, council and government policy will follow.
