  • Team award sponsored by Brightkidz - eg, a working group who have engaged successfully with their target audience could be considered

Best Sustainable Travel Initiative

This award recognises specific projects and initiatives, developed by individuals and groups, to promote and encourage sustainable travel for any journey. 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.

  • the award for an initiative developed by or delivered in a Business is sponsored by Pindar Creative

Best Project under £1000 -

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.
