-> RFP - CITYBUILDERS NETWORK: TRANSLATING INSPIRATION INTO ACTION RESEARCH PROJECT, PEOPLEFOR BIKES

PeopleForBikes seeks an experienced multi-disciplinary professional to design a framework for understanding, capturing and catalyzing actions taken by city leaders who are inspired during international study tours. The first phase will require research to create a compendium and analysis of actions taken by past study tour participants — both big and small, public and private, individual and collective — that help get bike infrastructure improvements on the ground. The second phase will use phase 1 results to create a tool for inspiring 2015 tour participants — we call them City Builders — and tracking their strategic actions and outcomes once they return home. The project timeframe is February through May 2015, with a maximum budget of $25,000.

Deadline: January 30, 2015
