Edinburgh College Students' Association are here to help you with your New Year resolutions for 2022!
Do you want to save money or get active after Christmas? You can do both by travelling using more sustainable methods (walking, cycling, or public transport) for the regular journeys you make - whether that's to College, work, or somewhere else you go regularly. Not only will these travel methods help with your physical and mental health whilst saving you money, they're also much better for the environment.
Not quite sold on the idea yet? To help motivate you to travel more sustainably,the Students' Association is giving a reward worth £10 to any student who makes a pledge that they manage to stick to! Simply fill in the registration form below, where you'll get an option to decide which change you'd like to make to your travel, and which prize you'd like to receive if you make the change.
In order to claim one of these prizes, you will need to pledge to a more environmentally-friendly method of travel for an essential journey you make regularly. For example, if you currently get the bus the College, you could pledge to cycle, or get off a few stops early and walk part of your journey. Our Go Green Team will then contact you with a form to fill out by 18th February to confirm whether you have stuck to your sustainable travel pledge!
To make things even easier for you, you can make a personalised travel plan by clicking here, which will show you all the different travel methods for your journey with timings and the benefits these can have to the planet!
If you're journey is too long for active travel or public transport options, why not sign up to our Edinburgh College Liftshare site that is exclusively for our students (unless you open it up to the wider public). This is the perfect way to split the costs of fuel, reduce how often you're travelling by yourself, and a great way to meet new people! You can sign up and add your journey details for Liftshare here.
