Bike!Bike!Everywhere! 2021

Bike!Bike! is an international get-together where people share experiences and ideas about community bike projects. It is for groups that use the bicycle as an excuse to educate -- to change society, economy and the environment.

The classic Bike!Bike! is normally hosted by a different city each year, over a 4-day period. There are also regional events like Bike!Bike! Northeast or Bike!Bike! Southwest.

Bike!Bike! Everywhere! 2021 is online, so you don't have to bike thousands of miles to get there. Also so we don't spread germs.

You don't have to be an expert or belong to a huge group, you just need to be willing to share what you know about organization, teaching, learning, pandemic management, mechanics, social impact, diversity, equity, inclusion, better access to bicycles or knowledge and social issues in your community or city.

We need translators, interpreters, and other volunteers! If you want to help, please email bikebikeeverywhere@gmail.com.

Registration will be open from Saturday, May 15 ??? through Saturday, September 4 2021 ???.

Translation & Language Justice

This is an international conference - more than ever because it is online! We will add more information about translation, interpretation, and language justice as it becomes available.

What is language justice?
Language justice is based in the idea that everyone has the right to communicate in the language in which we feel most comfortable, to understand and to be understood. Language justice is a shared commitment to creating bilingual/multilingual spaces where no language dominates over any other. We can use tools such as interpretation, the practice of a language being transferred into another language verbally/signed, and translation, the practice of a language being transferred into another language written, to build language justice.
