The Modeshift National Sustainable Travel Awards recognise best practice in the promotion of sustainable travel. Through the awards, Modeshift Members are recognised by their industry colleagues for showcasing best practice for their work, schemes, and projects.


Whilst our current working circumstances are very different to previous years, there is no difference to our awards. We know that members continue to develop and deliver initiatives and projects to promote sustainable travel, including activities to tackle climate change, increase levels of physical activity and improve road safety.

We would like to invite Modeshift Members to nominate projects for the National Sustainable Travel Awards, that have demonstrated impact in the promotion of sustainable travel. Projects can include work undertaken in a range of settings including education, business and community settings.

Criteria

The awards will recognise initiatives or projects that meet at least two of the following criteria:

  • innovative or creative - a new idea or successful adaptation of an old one
  • shows engagement and involvement with target group – pupils, students, staff, volunteers have been involved in design and/or deliver
  • involves joined up approach – collaborative working with other organisations or teams
  • can measure success in outputs and outcomes; e.g. providing 10 pool bikes for staff (output) has seen a reduction in 20 car journeys per week (outcome)
  • sustainable – has proven longevity
  • transferable - other Members have, or can, duplicate the initiative
  • cost effective – showing good value for money
  • identifies barriers and provides solutions – shows how the target audience are now travelling more sustainably

Working on a low budget, you have to negotiate and work with ‘who you know…’ therefore any ‘payment in kind’, sponsorship or other financial contribution does not need to be included in the £1000. However they will need to be detailed in the nomination and you must show how the project will be sustained when sponsorship is no longer available.
