We teamed up with IRCOM, Winnipeg Trails Association, Plain Bicycle, Healing Trails, Malaya Marcelino’s Office, and Safe Speeds WPG to create a fun outdoor space for children and families who live in central Winnipeg, to show everyone how great shared streets can be.
#Love30on30 is a monthly awareness campaign for safe 30km/h speed limits, supported by local environmental and community organizations, such as Safe Speeds WPG. Love30 demonstrations show people how their neighbourhood or street can be used differently. Safe 30km/h speeds are a keystone to equitable and accessible communities, providing safety for everyone however they choose to get around and creating an environment that is pleasant to be in and safe to use.
Furthermore, these events create opportunities to build community, create a sense of place, and start important conversations. These discussions help inform our leaders about how people feel about their neighbourhood or street, how they would like to see things change, and what aspects of their streetscape are most important to them. Check out love30on30.org for more details.
