Bike Scouts is a social platform for doing good! We are a community that thrives on creating inspiring and positive stories from the good we do together to promote sustainability, bicycle mobility, and a shared and equal resilience. The Bike Scouts community works as a network of support for doing good and serves as the only continuously-operating Volunteer Bicycle Messenger service for disaster response, serving as the “last mile access” and a genuinely-local “first line of response” for communities. The Bike Scouts community and platform is sustained by the work we do with partner companies that we help in “doing good where they do business.” We are a finalist of the global Safe Steps DTech Awards and part of the 1% worldwide selection for the Facebook Community Accelerator program. Bike Scouts is a part of the United Nations SDG partner platform, the UNOCHA Community of Practice in the Philippines, the UNDP’s “Mover Programme” for the youth, Ushahidi – an open source mapping platform for social activism, citizen journalism and geographic information, Flying Labs PH for UAV training, and Spain-based Fields Data for disaster data analysis and management. In the Philippines, we are a partner of the Rapid Emergency Telecommunications Team, Philippine Red Cross, and have worked with the Makati Business Club and Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP).
