On 2 September this year, the Sixth National Tracks and Trails Conference in Sydney endorsed the Declaration of Greenways for Australia.
The Declaration provides a national statement about the value of greenways for Australia and Australians and seeks support from the Commonwealth Government through its recognition of the Declaration in principle, so setting in progress work towards formal recognition of and access to greenways.
The Australian Greenways Declaration is based on the 2000 Lille Declaration endorsed by the EGWA that develops the concept of greenways. The Association is delighted by this initiative which will contribute to the development and spread of greenways internationally.
