For our August meeting we’be be running another of our popular Volunteer Workshops. Whether you are an experienced volunteer or new to the Campaign, come along to find out what Dublin Cycling Campaign is up to and how you can get involved.
Tea and coffee will be available from 18.30 to 19:00. We will start with some updates from the campaigns and working group. Then the working groups will meet until 20:00. We have four working groups that will be meeting up, and you are welcome to sit in on one of these, or move from group to group. We will also be planning our AGM which takes place on Saturday 15 September.
The working groups are:
The Infrastructure Group: The aim of this group is to improve our roads and public spaces to enable and encourage walking and cycling. One of the first tasks the group is undertaking is to outline the processes and systems in which infrastructure is developed and disseminate good cycling design standards and practices in a simplified and accessible format for all volunteers. Knowledge is Power!
The Public Policy Group aims to improve public policies and law enforcement for the benefit of people who walk and cycle. The group is initially focusing on two elements: Firstly, gathering data to enable us to show how much a modal-shift to cycling will bring to society; and secondly, looking at effective enforcement of traffic laws that impact on the cycling experience.
The Perception Group wants to promote cycling as a normal, joyful aspect of everyday life. The group will tackle the myths and misconceptions about cycling while also promoting the many benefits. The group is currently categorising and prioritising its targets.
The Organisation Group aims to grow Dublin Cycling Campaign as a strong voice for people who want to cycle. It is currently focusing on volunteer and member engagement, organisation governance, communication strategy, and a new initiative on member testimonials.
Looking forward to seeing you there, it’ll be a lively, informal exchange of what’s worked for people. And you are also very welcome to continue the discussion in the very nice Library Bar following the workshop.
Help us do more for cycling in Dublin, please consider getting involved.
