Getting Businesses On Board
Converting an issue into a campaign – to activate your core supporters and engage a wider audience
If you want to bring about change its important to engage with not just your hard core supporters but also the wider audience.
The CAN survey in February, and Safe Streets for Cycling campaign were important stages on the journey to change attitudes around cycling. Let's make NZ a less congested, more sustainable country, where cycling and walking are safer and given higher priority than use of private vehicles.
Jill will discuss how this was done on a miniscule budget, what was achieved, then open the workshop to discussion on what we need to do next and how the lessons can be used at local level.
