Thank you for asking Shipra,
I have to believe that there is a lot that we can do – much of it at very low cost and without a lot of outside help – to use alternate media to get our messages across and to develop pubic and political support for the sustainable transport and women's agenda issues. The first step in this process is to face the (sad?) truth, and that is that few people ever read much, our politicians and decision makers among them. And certainly not give deep attention to long reports. We need to get at them and get the message across. That is our challenge.
How to start? Well, what about for starters our trying to collect a certain number of good clips and videos that deal with our issues, and putting them into high relief. I am sure that our friends at Mobility Mag in South Africa (hi Gail) will be strong partners in this, and I am sure others.
Once we start developing our collection we can then think through the best way to share them widely.
A final word on technique. I am sure that we agree that what is important is not that we are happy with what we do, but rather that the message actually gets out and has an impact. And to obtain this we need more than nice thoughts and earnest of what we are trying to do.
