Applications for CWANZ membership for now open

Cycling and Walking Australia and New Zealand (CWANZ) wants more councils to join its efforts to increase all aspects of active transport.

The organisation’s vision is safe and connected walking and cycling networks and neighbourhoods for all, through working collaboratively to recommend strategies and actions that make walking and cycling an easy choice and a normal part of everyday life.

CWANZ’s work program includes:

  • Creating networks and sharing knowledge via meetings, webinars and regular newsletters;
  • Building an active transport resources library for members, focused on walking and cycling; and
  • Reviewing guidance and trials relevant to walking and cycling prepared by an expert panel.

CWANZ members, including the state and territory transport agencies and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, meet via quarterly videoconference meetings with more regular meetings scheduled throughout the year for local government members and representative organisations.

Membership is free.

Expressions of interest close at 5pm (AWST) 18 July. Click here for more information or contact CWANZ executive officer Sam Bolton or chair Tim Selby
