Welcome new champions – Gabrielle and Christophe

Streets Alive Yarra is building an online record of broad community support for walking, cycling, public transport and place making. One way that we do this is to have local residents stand up as champions for their street, school or neighbourhood.

Please welcome our two newest champions, Gabrielle and Christophe. Gabrielle is our champion for Gold (LAPM 10), and Christophe is our champion for the Inner Circle Rail Trail.

Gabrielle has lived and worked in Collingwood for 13 years and been a City of Yarra resident for 15 years. Her fondest and earliest memories of Yarra are of being dinked around the streets of Fitzroy. She eventually got her own bike and has only ever looked back when overtaking. She is a solid supporter of active transport for its own sake, as well as to improve public health, respond to the climate emergency, and build stronger, happier, more resilient communities. As an artist, activist and parent, Gabrielle values ground-level participation in civic life, and the provision of public space for assembly, game-play, protest and urban nature. She brings her energy and creativity to the Streets Alive vision. Gabrielle is the champion for Gold (LAPM 10).
