We all have to move to get to work and wherever we recreate. Why not move in ways that improve health, promote safety, save money and maintain air quality?
Starting June 7, Albertans are encouraged to move with the air in mind once a day for 30 days. It could be as simple as walking to the library and borrowing a book on air or reducing idling time by parking and going inside instead of using a drive-thru. When these daily activities become habits and lots of people do them, everyone benefits. You can move on your own or with your family, coworkers, friends or teammates on your way to work, play, home or on a road trip.
Move yourself using human-powered transportation.
Move smart using fuel efficient practices when driving.
Check back daily or follow us on Twitter. We will be adding challenges each day for the next 30 days!

Bike to a park and have a picnic.
June 24 – Challenge #18
Mend your fuelish ways – avoid carrying unnecessary weight!
Remove unnecessary weight from your vehicle. The less weight in your vehicle, the less fuel your engine will need.
June 23 – Challenge #17
Mend your fuelish ways – maintain a steady speed!
Be consistent with your speed. Consider using cruise control for highway driving. Where traffic patterns permit, allow your speed to drop when you travel uphill, then regain your momentum as you roll downhill.
