Bike to Work

As part of its commitment to promote greener world, the Centre for Human Rights, Multiculturalism, and Migration (CHRM2) together with Gender Studies, Pusat Kajian Pancasila dan Konstitusi (PUSKAPSI), Tegal Boto Cycling Club, and Bike to Work Indonesia organized a cycling campaign. This event is to celebrate international cycling day on 3 June every year.

The event invited some enthusiastic workers around Jember who have used bicycle to their workplace. The organizers were supported by RODALINK, the largest bike shop in Indonesia. The event is a continuation of Ring the Bell (RTB), a monthly cycling event initiated by CHRM2 since 2018 to promote University of Jember as the green campus. The Centre hopes that the campaign will be able to influence the local Government of Jember, private sector, and the University of Jember to provide facilities for bicycle such as parking and cycle line in their office.
