Active travel simply means making journeys by physically active means - like walking, cycling, or scooting.
Positive impacts include:
- Reduced congestion
- Reduced air pollution
- Higher quality public realm
- Better physical, mental and social health
- Increase economic growth and vibrancy.
Good infrastructure for walking and cycling is important, but people also need encouragement, support and guidance to change their behaviours and switch their journeys to on foot or by bike. This is what we promote mainly in Dundee Primary Schools. Our goal is to transform our city with the help of Dundee City Council, Parent Forums, Teachers and of course Children to a place where our journeys matter and more enjoyable.
