Structuring the campaign

Under this year’s motto “Shifting Up A Gear” we started growing the Campaign as well as started looking at the growing demands of the Campaign. It’s fantastic to see us steadily expanding – after all, it means we have a louder and more concerted voice that can be translated into more influence. However this also means that we have to keep an eye on our organisational needs and make sure our structures support this as best as can. The Committee meeting held on 4 November 2014 formally approved an aspirational Committee structure. We also said that we want to be an active committee – never a “talking shop” – with its members taking on roles and tasks.[…]

Campaigners workshop in Leeds – a member reflects

Patrick, Sally and Katja attended the Space for Cycling Campaigners workshop in Leeds. Patrick sums it up here. In May, a healthy North East contingent made the train bound for Leeds and the recent Space for Cycling campaigners conference. Space for Cycling is a campaign theme which started in London, by the London Cycling Campaign, but has resonated nationally and was launched by CTC and local campaign groups at the conference. It’s a great way of communicating the sometimes fuzzy and disparate needs of people on bikes into themes that decision-makers can recognise, and act upon. The six themes of[…]
