Green-Schools Travel launch the #andshecycles Roadshow
In Ireland, fewer than one in 250 girls cycle to school each day.
In 2019 Green-Schools worked with teenage girls to develop the #andshecycles campaign to shine a light on the barriers currently reducing the rate of girls choosing to cycle. The greatest success from the campaign launch was that it stirred up many necessary conversations around the social barriers which girls face in relation to cycling. #andshecycles is a national campaign that wants to help girls get back on their bikes while addressing some of the reasons they’re reluctant to in the first place
Following the much anticipated #andshecycles launch event in Dublin in September 2019, the next phase of the campaign will take to the road with roadshow-style, regional events around the country. The #andshecycles Roadshow will be held in various towns and cities across Ireland between February and May 2020.
The first stop on the #andshecycles Roadshow is Castlebar, Mayo on February 6, where the campaign will launch its Roadshow in the Leisure Complex, Lough Lannagh at 6.30pm. Following the photography exhibition and a screening of the campaign video, Angelina Nugent will lead the panel discussion and Q&A as MC, along with panellists, Green-Schools Travel Officer Mayo, Lukasz Krzywon, GAA star Katheryn Sullivan, cyclist Saoirse O’Reilly and two Mayo secondary school students. Tickets for the events are both limited and free and can be ordered via Eventbrite.
#andshecycles Roadshow events will be posted both on the Green-Schools Events page and on Eventbrite. We’d love to see you there and you can share the hashtag below on your social media to promote an event in your region.
📸 **** Please note that the #andshecycles Roadshow is a public community event admissible by registered ticket only. During the evening there will be press photography and audio recording of the panel discussion followed by Q&A.**** 📸
