Bydgoski Ruch Miejski (Bydgoszcz Urban Movement) is a non-government organization established in January 2017 in the city of Bydgoszcz, Poland. It originally operated under the name Społeczny Rzecznik Pieszych (”The Voice of Pedestrians” Association), which was changed in 2022. It is a non-profit organization that relies on the voluntary work of its members and supporters.
The Association was the first of its type in Poland to join the International Federation of Pedestrians (IFP). The IFP is a network of non-profit associations and individuals from all over the world, working for pedestrians and liveable public space. The IFP was founded as an UN-accredited NGO in 1963 and has been promoting the rights of pedestrians ever since.
Also we are a founding member of the Federation Piesza Polska (Pedestrian Poland), which unites pedestrian organizations from towns and cities around Poland. Members of Piesza Polska organized the first assembly of pedestrians called ”Pedestrian Critical Mass” in Warsaw in September 2017.
