I was curious if any BikeForums members are active in college advocacy groups.
I am somewhat involved in Durham's bike and ped advocacy group, and as a Duke employee, I am considering volunteering for the advocacy group on campus as well.
My main questions are: 1)What successful events or initiatives have taken place in an academic setting in your communities, and 2)What advice could you give me, as a possible liason between the city and the university? (This town-gown relationship is rather strained, to put it mildly)
- Also, could you post some links to your college advocacy group homepage?
Here is mine: http://www.duke.edu/web/bikeadvocacy/
Duke's advocacy group is open to all members of the community; students, staff, and faculty.
This month's events are a two-day bike repair clinic, followed by a group ride through campus on Int'l Car Free Day.
