GoBike was invited to give a short presentation on a campaigning theme at the Transform Scotland AGM 2017 held in Glasgow City Chambers on 26 October. We chose the topic of Contraflow Cycling and a summary of our talk is on the Contraflow Cycling campaign page on our website. Contraflow is essential in our towns and cities to make them permeable for bikes. One way streets were introduced to “improve” flow for cars, but this, as we know, has had the effect of increased vehicle speeds, increased vehicle use, increased congestion and increased pollution; we want our streets back.
At the AGM Transform Scotland launched their Transform 20 campaign: ‘As part of Transform Scotland’s 20th anniversary year we’ve launched a new campaign called #Transform20. This campaign focuses on offering an easy way for the public to communicate their ideas to transform transport in Scotland to become more eco-friendly, safer and easier to access.
Ideas can be simple and don’t require a detailed explanation. To submit your idea, please go to our website http://transform20.transform.scot, where you can submit a brief description of up to 200 words on how you think Scottish transport can be transformed. Your idea must be accompanied by a title (under 10 words) and there’s an option to upload a high quality picture to support your idea. You can also upload supporting documents or provide a link to further information if you wish.’
GoBike has submitted our Contraflow campaign to this page, others have submitted their ideas too. Why not have a look and submit your bee-in-your-bonnet campaigning idea?
If you like our Contraflow campaign please send in your contraflow picture, telling us where it is, to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it to the web page.
