Deadline Extension – nominations are now open until Friday 30th July for Modeshift’s National Sustainable Travel Awards!

Our National Awards are here to recognise you, your colleagues and those you work with in business, education, and community settings for all the hard work and outstanding contribution to the world of sustainable travel.  We want to celebrate the achievements of those in our industry who work together to achieve our shared aims and objectives.

You are invited to nominate initiatives you have been involved with, or those that have been undertaken in your area, that demonstrate the sustainable travel work of education providers (schools, colleges, universities), workplaces and community groups.

To nominate a project, person or team, simply complete the following Awards Nominations Form and send it to travelwards@modeshift.org.uk.

Nominations will close on Friday 30th July with the finalists being announced on Friday 10th September.

Awards Categories:

Best Partnership

This award recognises and celebrates the efforts being made by individuals and groups to work in partnership with education providers, businesses and community groups, to promote and encourage sustainable travel.

Best Project Under £1,000

This award recognises budget busting projects and initiatives that have cost less than £1,000. Nominations will be accepted from organisations that have made a contribution of less than £1,000 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 could be used to ‘start up’ the project and does not need to be included in the £1,000. However, the contribution will need to be detailed in the nomination and must show how the project will be sustained without the additional support.

Best Sustainable Travel Initiative – Business

This award recognises projects and initiatives for business travel, developed by individuals and groups to promote and encourage sustainable travel. Projects can include those that involve multi-stranded elements of sustainable travel, e.g. Green Travel Weeks.

Best Sustainable Travel Initiative – Community

Best Sustainable Travel Initiative – Education
