Student Advocacy Materials

WHY ADVOCATE?

If you’re a student in Halifax who likes to bike—in any way, shape or form, cycling infrastructure and advocacy can make it easier and more comfortable for you. Even if you’re comfortable on the roads—everyone should be able to feel safer while cycling in Halifax. This page includes materials that are specifically aimed at students and young people. Click on the image titles for access to the PDF documents. If you’d like to distribute these, or have questions about youth advocacy with HCC, send us an email to contact@cyclehalifax.ca.
