To promote PARK(ing) Day, we turned our carpark into a Pop-Up Parklet. We offered YourMove prizes with a promo to 'Give up your Bay for a Day'. Eight staff committed to carpool or catch public transport 🚌 and were rewarded with free public transport (thanks YourMove SmartRiders!), their own travel plan and other YourMove goodies.We turned staff car bays into an urban oasis with:
🌵 Plant-your-coffee-cup from the Wellness Committee
🍎 Hell's Kitchen healthy cooking demo
🚶 Healthier Workplace WA outdoor meeting space
⚽ our local gym did a pop-up circuit
PARK(ing) Day is a global event held on the third Friday in September every year. For us it was a fun way to engage staff and generate some positive media - parking's a hot topic in Subiaco!
Nearly 2 in 3 Australians use personal vehicles to get to and from work. That's a missed opportunity to get active, as 29% of public transport users achieve their recommended daily target of 30 minutes or more physical activity simply taking public transport.
