June has arrived and this month's green theme is... cycling. Bike Week 2012 is running from 16-24 June this year and it would be great if kidney units could take part.
The main aim is to encourage colleagues (maybe even some patients) to get on their bikes and remember how much they like cycling!
What can you do? Actions for everyone:
1 - Send around an email to let colleagues know that Bike Week is happening. Maybe point them to the Bike Week journey planner: http://www.bikeweek.org.uk/journeyplanner/
2 - Put up some notices around the department - simple ones that you draw with a felt pen or create in Word are fine.
3 - Talk to as many people as you can and encourage them to get their bikes out
4 - Post a few words in the Green Nephrology forum to let others know that you are taking part
Extra ideas to consider:
- Register a workplace event on the Bike Week website at http://www.bikeweek.org.uk/ - event ideas include Bikers Breakfast, Group Ride, Dr Bike/information stand
- Contact the sustainability lead at your Trust to find out if they are organising a Bike Week event.
- Look up other Bike Week events in the area: http://www.bikeweek.org.uk/event_search.php
- Do a sponsored ride and donate the money to Green Nephrology!
