In the past we have used Green Transport Week as a celebration of sustainable transport and as an opportunity to launch a number of national campaigns such as Walk to School Day and thought-provoking stunts like the Pop-Up Zebra Crossing. Green Transport Week is the most effective way to get a debate going about transport issues in your area, and to spread awareness of the relationship between transport and the environment in schools and workplaces.
Green Transport Week 2016 runs 11-19 June.
Are you planning a Green Transport Week? If so, please tell us about it. We may be able to support you with advice and resources and help publicise your activity on our website. Contact us via email.
If you are wondering whether or not to get involved then consider this:
- Car use is at an all time high in Britain, and as the roads get busier, really green transport – by foot and bike – gets more and more difficult.
- The car is being used for increasingly short journeys, as a proportion of all car journeys, 24% are less than 2 miles and 58% are less than 5 miles.
- As a proportion of distance travelled, the car accounts for 81% of our journeys, walking for only 3% and cycling for a measly 0.5%.
