Campaign Training Day

CTC is currently running both the Space for Cycling and Road Justice campaigns. This day will provide workshops on both these campaigns, boosting the voice for safer cycling and better cities. You will learn about how to champion and advocate improved cycling infrastructure and fight for a justice system that sends out fair and clear messages asking for a better deal for vulnerable road users including cyclists.

In Newcastle, CTC have teamed up with the Newcastle Cycling Campaign to deliver the training. You can register here:
