All you have to do is:

  • Register for Change Your Mode for March by 5pm 28 February

And you’ll go in the draw to win $500 cash or a $100 family movie voucher – it’s that easy!

Why

There are so many reasons to take the Change Your Mode for March challenge. Walking, cycling or catching the bus instead of driving a car has lots of benefits for you and the environment. Here are a few:

  • Exercise is good for your health and your sense of wellbeing
  • Easing congestion on our roads makes it easier to move about the city
  • Leaving the car at home reduces transport emissions
  • Walking, cycling or catching the bus saves you money on petrol, parking and vehicle maintenance.

While the ACT is on track to meet its target of 100% renewable energy by 2020 and carbon neutrality by 2045, we also need to address emissions from the transport sector. Transport is one of the highest emitters of greenhouse gases in Canberra and everyone needs to do their bit to reduce emissions. Every time you leave the car at home, even for small trips, you help to create a more sustainable and healthy Canberra.

How

Registration is easy – register with the Eco Challenge and accept the Change Your Mode for March challenge by 5pm 28 February 2019.

The competition kicks off on 1 March, where you'll be able to select your form of transport and distance traveled each week.
