CicLAvia seeks Survey Volunteers to assist with Evaluation of Open-Streets Event

Posted on April 24th, 2015

Location: 3780 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles CA 90010
Duration: Single Day
Date: May 31, 2015



CicLAVia seeks volunteers to assist us with our ongoing study and evaluation of our CicLAvia events. Volunteers will distribute and conduct surveys to participants along the route or within half a mile of the route.

Volunteers will be required to take an online training the week of May 25-28

No other prior experience is required.

Volunteer assignment will take place on Sunday May 31 in Pasadena along the route.

CicLAvia catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free street events. CicLAvia engages with people to transform our relationship with our communities and with each other.

CicLAvia makes the streets safe for people to walk, skate, play and ride a bike. There are activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia.

Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States.

Connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space. In Los Angeles we need CicLAvia more than ever. Our streets are congested with traffic, our air is polluted with toxic fumes, our children suffer from obesity and other health conditions caused by the scarcity of public space and safe, healthy transportation options. CicLAvia creates a temporary park for free, simply by removing cars from city streets. It creates a network of connections between our neighborhoods and businesses and parks with corridors filled with fun. We can’t wait to see you at CicLAvia!
