Active Travel Ambassador Programme

The Active Travel Ambassador (ATA) programme provides young people aged 11 to 16 with the confidence and skills to address transport issues affecting their school community.

Through interviews, a site audit and tutor hands up survey, Oakwood’s ATAs found out that most young people travel in cars when they can walk due to timing issues, waking up late, safety issues, parental decisions and distance.

The Campaign Junction at Sheffield Town Hall on Tuesday 28 March will see Oakwood’s ATAs pitch for funding to support their campaign ideas and receive professional feedback from an expert panel.  Good luck to everyone involved.
