Best Sustainable Travel Initiative

  • This award recognises projects and initiatives developed by individuals and groups to promote and encourage sustainable travel for any journey, whether that's to an education provider or work, for business or pleasure. We are looking for applications for Education, Business and Community projects and initiatives. Applications will be accepted for sustainable travel projects that do not specifically relate to walking or cycling, eg parking improvement, increasing public transport. Projects can include those that involve multi-stranded elements of sustainable travel, eg. green travel weeks.
    • The Education award is sponsored by Pedibal
    • The Business award is sponsored by Broxap Ltd
    • The Community award is sponsored by Love to Ride

Best Project under £1000 - sponsored by BrightKidz

  • This award recognises budget busting projects and initiatives that have cost less than £1000. Nominations will be accepted from Members that have made a contribution of less than £1000 to deliver a successful sustainable travel project or initiative. Working on a low budget, you have to negotiate and work with ‘who you know…’ therefore any ‘payment in kind’, sponsorship or other financial contribution does not need to be included in the £1000. However they will need to be detailed in the nomination.
