Modeshift’s National Sustainable Travel Awards – Shortlisted Nominations!

Our National Awards are here to recognise you, your colleagues and those you work with in business, education, and community settings for all your 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.

Thank you to all those who submitted a nomination for this year’s National Sustainable Travel Awards; despite the challenges we’ve all faced, we have received a good number of nominations, all of which have been to a very high standard.  All entries have now been shortlisted by the Modeshift Management Board, and the finalists will now go on to be judged by an external panel, made up of experts in our field.  We will provide further details of the panel members in due course.

All winners will be announced at the National Convention that is taking place on 4th and 5th November at the Athena Conference Centre, Leicester.  If you haven’t already done so, please book your place here.
