NZCER agrees that Cycling Works in Wellington.

"The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) believes education to be about nurturing ākonga, realising potential, and helping communities thrive. As an organisation, we are primarily located in Wellington and caring for our people and the environment is paramount to helping us realise our vision.

Activities that support kaimahi health, safety, and hauora are welcomed at NZCER and bike riding is something many of our staff enjoy!

A number of NZCER staff (myself included) commute to work on our bikes. We also have an e-bike for staff that can be borrowed to get around town for meetings during the week. Each February, we're regular supporters of the Aotearoa Bike Challenge, often with close to 50% of staff participating so there's plenty of enthusiasm for cycling at NZCER. Having a safer and more connected cycling infrastructure around Wellington would be welcomed by the NZCER bike commuters. It would also like

Climate change and sustainability is also important to NZCER. We're engaged in learning about the changes and adaptations we need to be making in our education system in response to our changing climate and the need to live and learn in more sustainable ways. Cycling in Wellington is one way, we as staff can personally help reduce congestion, improve air quality, and reduce noise pollution. We're supportive of the Wellington City Council's commitment to create Paneke Pōneke - a connected bike network across the city. It will be good for the biking commuters at NZCER and would ultimately contribute to improving our environment."
