Description

We are a community-based coalition advocating sustainable transport in Western Australia founded in 2001. We have a Committee elected each year and the following Committee members speak to the media.

The Coalition seeks more sustainable and liveable communities where people are less dependent upon the car and have better access to travel alternatives. We seek a transport system and land use pattern that facilitates access, protects the environment and promotes community.

To this end we:

Develop and advocate policy and action for sustainable transport
Promote community awareness
Involve people in taking action to make changes
Research and lobby on issues of concern
Monitor policy and performance of government
Network with others, seek support and raise funds.

If you want to be involved, phone the STC’s Convenor on (08) 9328 8978, or if you are interested, a copy of the STC Constitution is available here.

The STC coordinates seminars and workshops where people can discuss new ways of addressing WA’s domination by the car. A successful series of conferences like Beyond Oil in 2003 and Oil: Living with Less in 2004, and TravelSmart and Beyond have raised awareness around Australia of peak oil and new travel demand management ideas.

The Association for the Study of Peak Oil (Australia)

The establishment of ASPO in 2004 was facilitated by the STC. It is an association of researchers, professionals and others with an interest in the study of peak oil and gas. ASPO is part of a network of similar organisations around the world.
