A Checklist of What You Can Do... as a Community Group
- Learn more about the tire inflation and maintenance issue (PDF: 70 Kb) and consider whether action or advocacy on this issue is relevant or complementary to your organization's mandate.
- Work collaboratively with other non-government and government organizations in your area to determine what mix of tire inflation and maintenance initiatives (e.g. workplace-based, or community outreach) will work best in your community. If your municipality has an environmental advisory or air-quality committee, this would be a good place to start discussions on what to do about tire inflation and maintenance. Tell them about this Web site, which offers the information and tools they need to get started.
- Consider partnering with other community organizations or your local municipal government (the health department or environmental affairs is a good place to start) to initiate a tire inflation and maintenance campaign or project in your community.
- Seek funds from government or private-sector environmental funding programs or foundations to develop and implement a tire inflation and maintenance initiative. For example, the EcoAction Community Funding Program funds environmental projects by non-profit, non-government organizations.
