MODESHIFT STARS - NOW FREE FOR ALL SCHOOLS
Modeshift STARS (Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for Schools) is a national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.
On November 6th 2014 the Minister of State for Transport Baroness Kramer announced a grant of £184k from the Department for Transport, to offer the STARS scheme to all schools in England. The funding also includes the provision of a STARS officer to facilitate the running of the scheme and awards events to recognise the top schools in the country.
We look forward to working closely with Modeshift to help promote sustainable travel to schools, communities and workplaces.
