    Hunter Transport Forum

    Wednesday 30 September 2015

    7:00pm

    Gallipoli Club, 3-5 Beaumont St, Hamilton NSW

    Transport in the Hunter is at a crossroads. The Baird government is intent on a ‘revitalisation’ strategy that will destroy valuable transport infrastructure, maximise inefficiency and, according to the former Transport Minister, was “not a transport decision”.

    With the closure of rail services and impending destruction of the heavy rail line, we need to look at other options. Why must we save the rail line? How do we fix the bus network? What are the options for active transport infrastructure such as cycleways? How do we make sure public transport stays in public hands? What would a sustainable transport future look like?

    The Greens’ Transform Transport campaign is a state-wide push for a new way of thinking on transport policy. The campaign comes to the Hunter on 30 September to consider ways forward for transport in the region that will work for people, not commercial interests.

    A conference focused on modern campaign techniques and skill sharing

    We have invited some of the best progressive campaigners to share their experience with you. This event will focus heavily on strategic, practical skill sharing. We will start at the beginning and go all the way through the process of winning a campaign.

    From setting goals and targets, data management, media skills and print and design to fundraising, door knocking and phone calling. By the end of the conference, you will walk away with the skills to take your local campaigns from a well-intentioned idea to a campaign victory party.
