Campaigners’ Day rescheduled: now 31st March

Update: Due to the snow, this event was postponed until Saturday 31st March (Easter Saturday).  There’s still time to book your free place, whether you were booked on the original one or not

Don’t miss out! We’re holding our third annual Walk Cycle Vote Campaigners’ Day on the 31st March in Glasgow – a great opportunity for anyone who’s keen to do more to support active travel in Scotland. It’s a chance to learn new skills, share ideas and network with other people who are passionate about improving conditions for walking and cycling.


We’ve got some great speakers, but it won’t all be just sitting and listening; there are two breakout workshops giving you a chance to get your hands on and discuss issues in smaller groups. Note that if one or two of them prove oversubscribed we will aim to repeat those. 

Whether you’re already a veteran campaigner, are just starting out, or are wondering whether it’s all for you, please do sign up – it’s free (although a donation to cover lunch would be appreciated).
