Interested in engaging colleagues with active travel but unsure where to start?

This online workshop, recorded on Wednesday 18th May, offered staff within NHS Scotland the chance to find out all there is to know about building engagement with walking and cycling.

Watch the recording to hear from Active Travel Embedded Officers based in NHS Highland, Dumfries and Galloway, Grampian and Shetland, on their lessons learned as a result of Covid and best practice tips for improving communications and fostering enthusiasm across their Boards.

We were also joined by John Higham from Cycling Scotland, who gave an update on funding.

Facilitating active travel brings so many benefits to colleagues. But knowing how to make this happen can be less clear, especially with limited time and capacity.

This workshop aimed to offer some direction and inspiration from success stories across NHS Scotland.

Our Get into Gear workshops provide a timely opportunity to think about how we can find joy and breathing space in making our everyday journeys more active and environmentally friendly.

The purpose of the Sustrans Workplace Engagement Programme is to increase active and sustainable travel of NHS Scotland staff, creating a culture where this is normalised.
