Mon May 25: Meeting for Car-free Commuter Challenge


* MONDAY, MAY 25, 7pm, Regional Headquarters, 111 Lisgar St, Room HR-D

On June 1-5, join hundreds of other green commuters in Ottawa/Hull and
other cities, and take the Car-free Commuter Challenge: an environment-
friendly competition that encourages alternative transportation. All you
have to do is walk, bicycle, bus, rollerblade or car-pool to work or
school, and keep track of how far you've gone. 

Reductions in air pollution will be estimated from distance travelled,
resulting in an environmental impact assessment for everyone who has
participated. Last year, 1139 people reduced pollution by about 5 tonnes. 
The event also includes challenges between cities, schools and workplaces
to see who can reduce pollution the most by using green transportation.

How can you get involved? Try to get your school or workplace in the
Challenge. This isn't as difficult as it may seem, it may be as simple as
putting up lots of posters. We are also looking for volunteers to help
with registration, and city-wide postering. 

For more information, come to our meeting on May 25, or contact:
234-1223, <challenge@flora.org> or <http://www.flora.org/commuter/challenge>.

* Representatives from the media are welcome to attend (and participate!)

The Car-free Commuter Challenge is brought to you by volunteers from:
Auto-Free Ottawa, OPIRG-Carleton, FLORA Community WEB, and
workers & students at workplaces & schools across the region.
This is the OPIRG-events@ox.org list. Announcement only please.
