In this election year we’re getting political – join us from 6-8 pm on Tuesday 4th April at the Glasgow Women’s Library for an active travel hustings for the local elections, talking with women politicians from all the major parties. The format will be the same as last year – we’ll be asking you to rotate between tables of politicians, talking about the issues that matter to you: social justice through transport equity, children able to play out in the street, climate change and carbon reduction, obesity and the inactivity that kills thousands of people in Scotland each year.
We hope that the evening will be an opportunity to get to know female politicians a little better, and hear what each other has to say without the political point making that can happen at mainstream political events. Feedback from last year’s event was really positive – from both politicians and potential voters.
The evening is part of the We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote campaign events – a collaborative partnership of over 40 active travel, environmental, health and children’s organisations focused on engaging with politicians in the run up to the local elections in May. This grassroots campaign is gaining in momentum as it reaches out to people and organisations that want to see the benefits of cycling: a healthier, wealthier and happier nation.
