Challenging the car culture


Last week, we had the pleasure of attending a lecture by Professor Marco te Brommelstroet in Melbourne, an experience that left us both inspired and invigorated. Despite the vast geographical differences between Australia and Europe, it was remarkable to observe how, much like in Europe, the majority of Australians reside in densely populated urban areas, specifically within the cities and suburbs.

This enlightening lecture left us with several key takeaways that have stayed at the forefront of our minds:

The right of children being able to go to school by themselves
Dont waste time
Kids are suffering

  1. The importance of empowering children to walk or bike to school independently, emphasizing their right to do so.

  2. The significance of not squandering precious time in our daily lives, urging us to make the most of each moment.

  3. The poignant realization that many children are enduring unnecessary hardships.

We would be keen to hear your thoughts on these thought-provoking topics, and you can find a detailed article on this subject in The Age, accessible via the following link: The Age article HERE
