Road Justice campaigner training - 2014

CTC is going to hold campaigner training days in nine cities across the UK during 2014 to equip campaigners with the skills and resources to campaign effectively on both the Road Justice and Space for Cycling campaigns.

Training workshops will cover:

General campaign skills:
– Gaining press coverage
– Using social media (Facebook and Twitter)
– Understanding and influencing local decision makers (Councils)
– Running effective campaigns groups

Road Justice:
– Understanding the legal framework
– Working with the police
– Following and attending court cases

Space for Cycling:
