Active Journeys Programme in Wales

Our Active Journeys programme works with schools across Wales to create a culture that makes it easier for children to walk, scoot or cycle.

We support school Champions and collaborate with Local Authority contacts to help improve routes and develop whole-school approaches to active travel. 

A range of engaging activities helps to build the confidence, enthusiasm and skills needed to help form new active travel habits. These activities and lessons support schools' efforts in achieving Eco-Schools and Healthy Schools awards as well as working towards Sustrans School Mark award which recognises excellence in sustainable travel.

The Active Journeys Programme offers

  • guidance and support to address specific travel issues around the school
  • activities and lessons focused on active travel
  • incentives for the school community that promote cycling, walking and scooting
  • access to our activity guides, curriculum support materials and on-line challenges

Participating schools

  • complete annual travel surveys
  • establish at least two Active Journeys Champions
  • involve pupils in planning
  • work towards providing good quality cycle and scooter storage
  • attend teacher training opportunities
  • actively promote active travel through assemblies and activities
