Two dates to get you in touch with your campaigning mojo

South West CTC Campaigns Training Day – Bristol

This is in central Bristol, so couldn’t be easier. Engaging CTC Campaigns Director Roger Geffen and colleagues from CTC HQ will be joining activists from Bristol Cycling Campaign on Saturday 15th November to inspire us about the national Space for Cycling and Road Justice campaigns, both areas where Bristol is showing the way.

The training day is for anyone who cares about improving conditions for cycling in the South West. People new to campaigning are particularly welcome and stand to benefit most. It’s at the St. James Priory Centre near St. James Barton roundabout on the edge of Broadmead shopping centre, and attendance is free. 11am to 5pm. Register for the free campaigner training here.
