Interested in Campaigning ? How 20’s Plenty for Us Can Help

20s Plenty for Us is the national organisation campaigning for 20 mph default speed limits, without traffic calming, where people live.  

Campaigning can be very rewarding.   We aim to maximise that buzz by helping people to be effective at getting local road signs changed to 20 mph.

Anna Semlyen’s Campaign Manager grant funded work is to support local activists to press for change.  Services are free (other than materials like stickers), though we welcome donations.  There are nearly 200 active local 20s Plenty for Us groups around the country with some wonderfully effective volunteer campaigners.  20s Plenty for Us offer anyone interested in being active on 20mph limits the following: - 

www.20splentyforus.org.uk  site including a 4 minute video, leaflets, campaigners section, media section, briefings – e.g. on air pollution, for transport professionals, press releases, posters, graphics, stickers, template petitions, template letters to councillors, case studies of local campaigns, advice on arguing the case to various professionals, power point presentations, 20s Plenty Rap Poetry (a rhyming summary of our message) and we are constantly adding more.

20’s Plenty stickers in various sizes (for wheelie bins, car bumpers, car windows and bikes)

Support in that you are not alone! In fact the power of our campaign is that it is such a universal aspiration.
