Canberra Loves 40% are a local group that are committed to lowering the Territories carbon dioxide emissions by 40% in line with State and Federal government policies. They have been quite active in lobbying Territory politicians and conducting activities to raise public awareness on this issue.
Part of this strategy to lower carbon dioxide emissions is to convince people to reduce private vehicle use, by using alternatives such as public transport, cycling or walking. They are also keen to support change to the primary mode of mass transit from diesel buses to electric light rail vehicles.
Although support for light rail is only one part of their overall strategy, I urge you to read their 'Build a Smarter Canberra' proposals.
