ATW is good for your school

A small change in how we get around can have a big impact:
We know that alternative and active travel can help improve our fitn
ess, health, mental wellbeing and productivity. Its also better for the environment, saves money and reduces traffic which in turn increases safe access to school

How to get your school involved
  • Tell your staff and pupils it’s happening and invite them to take part

  • Invite your leadership team to contribute to the ATW Selfie Challenge by sending to hello@betterjourneys.gg

  • Plan to close-down or cordon-off car parks for the week

  • Share your school's participation on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter and tag #ATWguernsey or #EnjoyYourCommute

Encouraging Change
Walk
  • Launch a walking-buddy scheme so pupils can walk in together

  • Set up a “walking-bus” for parents and pupils on the same route to school

  • Introduce a step counting competition to motivate walkers
