#Smartmovers Join Translink 20 November 2017

#Smartmovers Join Translink Travel Challenge – Local Schools Embrace Active Travel For Healthier & Greener Journeys

Schools across Northern Ireland are making ‘smart moves’ in a bid to cut congestion at school gates, boost pupil health and promote a more sustainable lifestyle.

Pupils are taking action following the launch of the Translink Eco–Schools Travel Challenge which promotes walking, cycling, bus and train travel for the school run instead of car use over a 2 week period.

Conscious that not all schools have the option of using ‘active travel’ modes on a regular basis due to their location, we still think it’s important to teach pupils about sustainable transport so they can make informed travel choices as they grow older and more independent. That’s why we’re encouraging all schools to submit their own #Smartmovers Project – demonstrating the steps they’ve taken to study the Eco–Schools Transport Topic.

Taking part is easy – simply visit www.translink.co.uk/ecoschools/ to download our fun Key Stage 1 – 3 Travel Challenge classroom resources, find out more about the #Smartmovers project and be in with a chance of winning fantastic prizes for your school!

Register for the Travel Challenge online through the Eco–Schools School Zone or by emailing ruth.vanry@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org.
