Let’s ride our bikes together for a sustainable future during the sixth KAUST Bike Week. From 4-9 December 2022, keeping in mind the extreme climate impact, why not try to leave your car at home and bike for a greener tomorrow?
Road transportation, such as cars, motorcycles, and buses, accounts for 11.9 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions (Source: ourworldindata.org). Biking is a greener mode of transportation that is fun and keeps you healthy. So, pump some air into those tires, oil your bike chain and get ready for a week full of activities that we hope will inspire you to cycle more within KAUST year-round.
Cycling for a greener world
Biking is much more than not burning fossil fuel. It is a simple act that can help communities contribute to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. By biking you contribute to for example goal #3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, and goal #11: Contribute to sustainable cities and communities.
Help the world towards a greener future by choosing your bike over your car, it doesn’t get much easier than that.
