The EMRC added to its list of awards for 2017 with the Swan River Ramble winning the Environments Promoting Physical Activity category at the Local Government Children’s Environment and Health Policy Awards held on 8 December.

The Swan River Ramble is an activity for walkers, cyclists and families to enjoy using colourful path signage and QR codes that highlight attractions, with the help of a fictional character named Eric, directing people around the Swan River.
The EMRC CEO Peter Schneider praised all the councils that were involved in the project.

“Collaboration between the councils involved in the Swan River Ramble contributed to the success of this regional project,” he said.

“It is fantastic to see families utilising the cycle route around the Swan River and enjoying the fun of finding Eric.”

The Children’s Environment and Health Policy Awards are presented annually by the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA, and showcase the progress of local governments in creating environments that protect and support the health of children.

The Awards are an initiative of the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA with support from Healthway, the WA Local Government Association (WALGA), the Commissioner for Children and Young People WA (CCYP) and The Cancer Council WA.
