People of Wellington - Jane Dawson

Coming back to Wellington from London, Jane Dawson was “shocked by the state of the biking infrastructure and bad drivers.” Instead of giving up, she instead decided to work with decision makers to improve her city.

That was a long time ago. In recent years she has worked with Cycle Wellington, and the Cycling Action Network (CAN)  to make things better.

“The key to making change is to approach it like a marathon and not a sprint.”

Jane has been part of the team that has made the biennial 2Walk&Cycle conferences happen and enjoyed the sharing of information and experiences at them.
