  • Engagement in sustainable travel initiatives

  • Road safety
  • Community safety
  • Environmental impacts

 

The YTAs will play a big part in organising the travel event for 2016, over the coming months the YTAs will meet with an advisor from TFL (Transport For London) for 5 sessions, the advisor will help them to plan and carry out the ‘Stop the Clock Travel Day’ later in the academic year.

 

The YTA’s will work towards Stormont House School achieving  the Silver Award from the EU Stars Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for Schools.

 

Well Done to everyone who has been elected as a Youth Travel Ambassador for 2015 / 16.
