Sustainability Games

We joined the party with our GIANT sustainability games. Like Snakes and Ladders, landing on sustainable modes of transport races ahead of other players but landing on an unsustainable mode of transport players are snaked down.

With some tricky puzzles from Padraic, he had everyone thinking about the modes and benefits of sustainable transport.

What is Green Transportation?

Transportation is a major contributor to global climate change, accounting for almost 23% of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion.

Green Transportation means any kind of transportation practice or vehicle that is eco-friendly and does not have any negative impact on the immediate environment.

Transportation Alternatives Magazine illustrates a Green Transportation Hierarchy:

Opting for greener transportation modes as often as possible will make significant environmental impact, in addition to the associated health and economic benefits.
A huge thank-you to our Axis friends for hosting the event. And to the sunshine for making an appearance!
