Why park it for the planet?

Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge

In August 2020 a three-part series Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge aired on the ABC.

Hosted by Craig Reucassel, Fight for Planet A tackles our reliance on coal and gas-powered energy, our high transport emissions and reveals the hidden emissions in the foods we consume. Crucially, he encourage us all to reduce our carbon footprint, especially in our homes.

Park it for the planet – 26 August 2020

Inspired by ABC TV’s Fight for Planet A series, on Wednesday 26 August people around Australia swapped out car trips for bike rides and pedalled more than 23,000 kilometres to save more than 5 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

While we were able to make a nice dent in Australia’s carbon emissions on the day, the challenge is to now keep it going so we can have an impact on climate change. Transport accounts almost 20 per cent of Australia’s overall emissions and we need to bring this down.

It’s easy to get involved. Try and swap bike rides for any local car trips you take, like going to the shops, school, work or cafe. 

You can also learn more about how bike riding can help reduce CO2 emissions and the effects of climate change.
