We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign and Go Bike are organising a FREE training day in Glasgow on Saturday 3 March at The Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road, Glasgow, G4 9SS.

The training day is an opportunity for anyone who wants to campaign for cycling, walking and more liveable towns and cities to meet, share ideas and learn. It should offer something for everyone from those just starting out to experienced campaigners.

The elections may be over for a while, but #walkcyclevote continues! With the Scottish Government ‘Programme for Government’ announcement in September doubling the active travel budget it has never been more important to work together to ensure that investment pays off.

For some of us, that means carrying off the balancing of supporting new (and possibly controversial) initiatives from the powers that be – while still continuing to hold them to account. For others, it means making sure our local areas don’t miss out or get left behind in the dash for active travel money. Either way, campaigners old and new will need new skills and new ideas as we move into a potentially exciting future.

For more information check out the Eventbrite page or the Facebook event page.

Living Streets Scotland are hosting a seminar about its Lower Speed Communities project from 11am to 2pm on Thursday 1 March 2018 at The Lighthouse, 11 Mitchell Lane Glasgow G1 3NU.

The project, which was funded by the Scottish Government, worked in 5 communities across Scotland where local people had identified speed as an issue. The seminar will explore the work undertaken in these communities, the lessons learned and how they might be applied across Scotland.

Places are limited so to book a place please register using Eventbrite to secure your free place, with lunch included. They are also running a seminar in Inverness on Tuesday 27 February.

In case of any difficulty booking tickets please contact Pat Douglas (e: pat.douglass@livingstreets.co.uk m: 07595 374477.

The Go Safe Glasgow Road Safety Partnership works together, sharing ideas and exploring new avenues of service delivery, but more importantly they share the same objective – to reduce casualties on Glasgow’s Roads and to make our communities safer for all.

The partnership brings together a wealth of experience and includes representatives from Glasgow City Council, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Glasgow Community and Safety Services and is led by Glasgow City Council’s Traffic and Road Safety Development Section.

The Partnership is for the benefit of all road users – drivers, cyclists, those who drive for work and our most vulnerable citizens, such as children and older people.

Bike Life, the UK’s biggest assessment of cycling in cities, reveals four out of five people (78%) want more protected bike routes on roads built to make cycling safer, even when this could mean less space for other road traffic.

Bike Life, produced by Sustrans and seven major UK cities, reveals that out of the 7,700 people surveyed over two-thirds (69%) say more cycling would make their city a better place to live and work. Most residents interviewed think that more space for cycling and walking or buses, as opposed to more space for cars, is the best way to keep their city moving, improve people’s health or air quality.

Local primary school pupils made a significant contribution to the success of the first School Run Summit for west Glasgow, which was hosted earlier this week by local charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre.

The pupils, many of whom are Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs), joined over 40 other people who attended the School Run Summit, to look at how they could work together more effectively to address the school run issue and make the streets in and around local schools in the G11 to G15 postcode areas safer for all.

The primary school pupils told people about the great initiatives they are involved in including the JRSO programme, BikeAbility, the zig-zag campaign, the parking pledge, walking buses and park and stride schemes. Bankhead, Corpus Christi and Garscadden (now part of Clyde Primary) Primary Schools were all awarded the Glasgow City Council’s Lord Provost’s Road Safety Award in September.
