Cycle Campaigning: lessons from London and the Waltham Forest Mini-Holland
Open to all – come and tell us about your experience of cycling in Bristol.
Nationally renowned cycle campaigner and the London Cycle Campaign’s expert on cycling infrastructure, Simon Munk will give a presentation on promoting change in London, working directly with City Hall, and willing Boroughs and Transport for London. Heavily involved in campaigning for the award winning Liveable Neighbourhood approach in the Borough of Waltham Forest, Simon will offer an insight into securing a better, safer environment for cyclists and for people generally.
Come and join us to hear how the experience of the London campaign can be harnessed across Bristol to benefit all cyclists, other road users and residents, and to tackle the climate emergency. What can be done, why active travel has such a crucial part to play, what works, what doesn’t. Simon will also share his thoughts on Bristol, which he knows well. Ten years ago we were the UK’s only Cycling City; what did we do right but also what went wrong; Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, and London have Cycling and Walking Commissioners, as does Scotland. In the West of England we don’t. Are we in danger of falling behind and what can we do to ensure progress?
When: Tuesday 26 November 2019 17:30-19:30
