Green Transport Week
About this activity
Suitable for all schools and nurseries.
Green Transport Week takes place every June to raise awareness of the relationship between transport and the environment. It is also a platform for debate on transport-related concerns and an opportunity for schools to tackle local transport issues they’re facing.
It’s up to you how you use the week. It could be a good time to launch a cycling club, walking bus, an Air Quality competition or you could use it to focus attention on and celebrate the progress your school has made in moving away from car use over the year.
Work with your school travel working group, eco council and Junior Travel Ambassadors (JTA) to decide how you’d like to use the week to support your active travel targets.
Visit the Green Transport Week web page to find out the dates of the next week, and whether there is a theme. If you’re planning an activity, contact the week’s organisers to find out how they can support you.
