EIT staffers did their bit to ‘Move the Planet’ on Friday (September 23), forsaking fossil fuels to walk and bike to work.

Taking part in the global Moving Planet day, which encourages people to move away from fuel-consuming travel, some 80 EIT staff living in Bay View, Napier, Hastings, Havelock North, Haumoana and Clive gathered at Hier kannst du Roulette ohne Download spielen. the Taradale Clock Tower for the final leg of their morning commute.

Cyclists, runners, walkers and skateboarders arriving on campus then reunited for breakfast – provided by chief executive Chris Collins in the staffroom.

Organiser Deb Stewart said the international Moving Planet initiative squared with EIT’s commitment to sustainability.

“It is one of our institute’s strategic goals, and the choices we make each day do make a difference. We wanted to put EIT on the map for this one.”

Spot prizes were provided by Pedal Power in Taradale, EIT horticulture tutor Warren Holden and Fishbike on Marine Parade as an extra incentive for those taking part.
