The three key pillars of our work in Northern Ireland are behaviour change, improving infrastructure, and influencing Government to create more liveable places for everyone.
We're working to ensure the Northern Ireland Assembly and local authorities deliver policies and projects that enable more people to walk, wheel and cycle to help reduce car dependency.
Increasing the number of children who regularly walk, cycle or scoot to school has numerous benefits.
Our Active School Travel Programme is an exciting initiative for schools who wish to see more of their pupils choosing an active and healthy journey to school.
Our Community Active Travel Programme is about encouraging people and their community groups across Belfast to walk and cycle more as part of everyday life.
