We will give an update about the #ChangeOurStreets campaign and we also want your specific suggestions to improve Galway city to facilitate social distancing in residential, recreational, retail areas.

We have ideas – and we want more!

Please test your technology in advance. We are not in a position to give tech support.

We will gather specific suggestions of areas to improve and submit these to Galway City Council. This will deepen our conversation on how we can together ‘Change Our Streets’ to protect the physical well-being and mental health of all residents of all ages and all abilities, especially the very young and those who are vulnerable.

    Cycling, while not a panacea, can contribute to a solutions for many of the crises facing Ireland today. I’m talking about transport (which affects climate change and biodiversity loss), mental health (which exercise can help with in some cases) and obesity. The traffic and the knock on effects that has on peoples time and stress levels is also something that cycling can address. We will need cycle lanes, safe parking, public awareness campaigns, support for grassroots movements. Dublin is a city where you see many different types of cyclist negotiating their way through traffic. I would see bus stop posters with voices from cyclists with diverse lifestyles saying why they cycle. We don’t have the best weather but there are ways around that.
