Active travel is not only a great way to reduce carbon emissions, it benefits our physical and mental wellbeing too! The Active Travel Champions initiative is all about celebrating the active travellers in our communities and linking people up to projects all about walking, wheeling and cycling.
Do you support a smarter travel project? Or are you considering getting involved in any? If so, in our eyes, you are already an Active Travel Champion!
Active Travel Champions are bound by the desire and drive to help support or deliver active travel initiatives in the local area. The message is clear – for the sake of people and planet lets work on delivering and spreading the word around the most efficient and environmentally friendly ways to get around.
