What do you like about being a Modeshift Partner/Supporter?
Working with Modeshift is a great way to support our schools to embed active and sustainable travel into their daily lives. Getting students and staff to travel sustainably helps to reduce a school’s carbon emissions and gets them one step closer to zero carbon by 2030.
42% of UK households have school age children in them, what we teach our students can inspire positive change right across communities.
