TravelWise Week 2023

TravelWise Week is a world-wide, week-long Travel Challenge where Modeshift asks everyone to Travel Wisely!

Taking place between 16-22 September each year, TravelWise Week promotes active travel, public transport, and other cleaner and healthier transport choices, and culminates in World Car Free Day when everyone is encouraged to find an alternative mode of travel for just one day.

TravelWise Week provides the perfect opportunity to present realistic travel alternatives to employees, students, and the wider public, whilst raising awareness around the impacts of travel choices on an individual’s health and wellbeing, and on the environment.

During TravelWise Week, schools, workplaces, and other organisations are encouraged to hold a 5-day Travel Challenge by delivering a series of active and sustainable travel activities from Monday to Friday.

Local authorities are encouraged to organise and deliver activities across the full 7-days of TravelWise Week that celebrate active and sustainable travel, ending the week on a high by running events on World Car Free Day.

All organisations taking part have the opportunity to be recognised through Modeshift’s new and exciting TravelWise Week Awards!

Details coming soon on TravelWise Week 2024
