[Ambassador report] THEMATIC REPORT: ECO-FRIENDLY MOBILITY

by Meena Pandey | 20-11-2020 23:45 Comments 2 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



Most often, I use walking and cycling as the eco-friendly mobility. There are a lot of environmental benefits of walking and using bicycles besides health benefits.

I prefer walking if there is not any time bound to reach in the destination. I love walking because walking makes me cheerful and the tired legs makes me sleepy soon enabling the sound and deep sleep. When we walk, it influences other people by our way of walking. Similarly, it reduces the cost of bus fare. Not only that when many people use their legs as a mode of their transportation, there will be considerable decrease in the number of moving automobiles. Walking is beneficial for our health. Walking strengthens our heart. It is good for our health. Walking improves physical function. It also lowers the blood pressure and diabetes level.

In case I am in hurry and reach to the destination timely, I use bicycle. Cycling is an essential part of sustainable transportation. It can be an efficient way to address the transportation needs of a growing population. Cycling is a good option for air pollution management and it plays key role in mitigating the climate change through the reduced greenhouse gas emissions. It also improves quality public space. Cycling is more efficient option for shorter distance transportation. Promotion of cycling helps to increase the efficiency of the urban transport system. Similarly, investment in the cycling has high cost-benefit ratio. Cycling can be a good option of minimization of sound pollution.

Thus, if we make our eco-friendly mobility, we can influence a number of people to follow our eco-act. So, besides the long route travel I use walking and cycling as the efficient way of mobility. I want to recommend all the eco-warriors to follow walking and cycling because of its tremendous health and environmental benefits.

    Hello Meena!
    It's your SJ mentor.

    Thank you for sharing your thematic report regarding Eco-friendly Mobility.
    Walking and cycling have a lot of merits in terms of fitness, environment.
    These traveling methods do not emit greenhouse gas by just moving.
    I also try to walk on foot or ride my own bike when move nearby.
    In Seoul where I live on, there are quite nice public bike system anyone can use at low cost.
    Citizens are used to utilize this system when the weather allows.
    I hope more local governments adopt similar public bike system.

    I hope everything will come out all right.

    Best regards,
    SJ mentor.

    Hello Meena,
    this is your mentor WooJoo.

    Thank you for sharing your report about eco-friendly mobility.
    I think that the best way to travel short distances is by walking, or cycling too.
    I love walking too, and I agree that it makes me cheerful and more active.
    It has lots of advantages, like you said,
    but there are limitations for it, too.
    I would like to know what kind of eco mobity you use when you have to travel longer distances or in bad weathers!

    Green cheers!

    Regards,
    WooJoo
