Our objectives were:
- To reduce traffic congestion during peak times, especially around the morning rush hour
- To reduce the impact of short car trips used on the school run
- To encourage parents and pupils to walk, cycle, scoot or use public transport for some of these journeys
- For pupils to benefit from increased physical activity as part of their daily routine
Children, families and teachers joined together for their Big Walk to School event to celebrate a year of walking activities.
The Mayor of Bristol has made a series of environmental commitments on Clean Air Day to protect the most vulnerable from harmful pollution and ensure the city is playing its part in tackling global climate challenge.
Residents left their cars at home and took to public transport, pupils organised walking buses to school and cyclists pedalled in convoy as Bath and North East Somerset got involved in this year’s Clean Air Day.
Pupils at primary schools across Bath and North East Somerset are being encouraged to take part in a project to raise awareness of the causes and impact of air pollution and how to combat it.
Huge public consultation response supported no change to city's 20mph limit
Five schools hosted street parties as part of 'Walk to School Week' to highlight the issue of traffic congestion outside schools.
