Week 9 of our interviews featuring each of our Board Members. This week you can find out more about Aimee-Claire Eyermann, Modeshift’s South West Regional Representative.
How long have you been involved in sustainable travel?
About 7 years now. I developed a passion for sustainability and started working on environmental projects for Groundwork South in 2015 before working on sustainable transport projects in particular; starting with Sustrans as a Schools Officer in 2015 and then onto Bristol City Council the following year as Senior School Travel Engagement Officer and School Streets Project Manager.
What have you most enjoyed about your job?
When working with schools, the moment when the penny drops and a child suddenly decides that they want to give walking, cycling or wheeling to school a go!
What are you working on now and what’s next?
I’m currently spending most of my time developing the Bristol School Streets pilot – with expanding this on the horizon, hopefully to include lots of new schools from across the City!
What do you like about being on the Modeshift Board?
The people absolutely make it – being part of such a friendly, inclusive team it’s never a dull moment. Also I really love hosting the regional meetings and helping to connect people from across the region.
