Statewide Forum on Transport

Date: Thu, 19/08/2010

On August 19, 2010 almost 90 young Tasmanians from across the state came together to increase their knowledge, and express their opinions in regards to transport issues in Tasmania.

The young people present were interested in the social, environmental and economic impacts of current transport options in Tasmania, as well as how they related to young Tasmanians. The Statewide Forum on Transport was held at the Punchbowl Christian Centre in Launceston, and was facilitated by TYF members, with the support of Michael O’Meara (Mo) of MoHow Consultancy.

The Minister for Sustainable Transport and Alternative Energy, the Hon Nick McKim MP opened the forum.

The aims of the forum were to:

  • Discuss what the issue of transport means to young Tasmanians,
  • Reflect upon practical solutions to transport issues that can be undertaken by young Tasmanians, and
  • Provide an opportunity for young Tasmanians to share ideas and interact with professionals and experts working within the transport industry
