A decade of cycleway activism: what‘s just happened?

December 4 @ 17:30 - 19:00

Free

A warm welcome back to Katja who will be speaking at our Christmas social evening. Kick off at 5:30 – talk followed by Q&A and drinks & snacks after 7:00pm in a nearby place. Everybody welcome!

Katja takes us through ten years of campaigning for cycleways in Newcastle. She also – as part of her PhD – had a look at Bremen, a cycle city in Germany. There are similarities and differences in the two cities, their kinds of activism and decision-making processes. Katja tells an activist story in times of political deficit and technical rule of automobility. At a pressing time of mounting public protests, Fridays for Future and Extinction Rebellion, she asks: what can we do?
