Schools may be closed to most but many of us in the sustainable travel sector are busy planning ahead for the ‘big return’… whenever that may be. How can you get more children to school in active ways, and encourage parents to keep cars away from schools? The innovative Modeshift walking bubbles and engaging resources are here to help.
Capturing the Imagination
The Modeshift Walking Bubble scheme with it’s five minute walk zone maps for schools supported by the DfT, is one solution that has already captured the imagination of school communities. Here at Brightkidz we are proud to be supporting the scheme with our range of official Walking Bubble resources.
The range has been constantly growing and responding to the needs of schools and local authorities… not just the actual products but also the way we adapt to lockdown-related delivery issues and help local authorities engage schools in the scheme.
The good news for London is that London schools and local authorities can now make use of the resources too. Originally these were for schools taking part in Modeshift STARS (outside the capital) but due to interest expressed and discussions with Modeshift and TfL, the resources now can feature the TfL STARS logo for schools in London. Those schools can gain access to the Modeshift Walking Bubble core resources eg the digital map by paying a small fee to Modeshift.
And for Everyone
For all those in the rest of the country, as well as in London, check out our update on some of the latest products in the Walking Bubble range for primary and secondary schools, including these engaging barbie, dino and twister gate signs.
We’ve also info on extensions to our delivery service eg if you are working from home or need delayed despatch – making it easy for you to help your schools’ Walking Bubble schemes be ready for the return to school.
