Imagine if buses were free… Campaign launch & Conference

September 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Launching in September 2020, Free Our City is a new coalition of community campaigns, trade unions and the youth climate movement, campaigning for free public transport for everyone in Greater Glasgow.

Inspired by the hundreds of forward-thinking cities across the world – from Kansas to Calais – we’re demanding that our politicians deliver a world-class, fully-integrated and accessible public transport network that’s free at the point of use. This radical policy is now urgent and necessary to ensure our city region makes a just and green recovery from the pandemic – a recovery which addresses the climate emergency and tackles gross inequalities in our society.

Join us for this online conference & launch event. We’ll be joined by speakers from different cities around the world to share their experiences of campaigning for, implementing and living with the many benefits of free public transport. They’ll be opportunities to ask questions and breakout sessions to discuss how to develop, get involved in and work together to win the campaign in Greater Glasgow.

The event will be on Zoom. Please ensure you follow the link to register on Eventbrite, so that we can send you the log-in details in advance: https://freebuses.eventbrite.com

The Free Our City Coalition includes: Glasgow Trades Council, Campaign Against Climate Change, Get Glasgow Moving, Scottish Youth Climate Strike, Scot.E3, Glasgow Calls Out Polluters and Divest Strathclyde.
