CrossCountry and Community Rail Education Network launched the UK’s first Sustainable Travel Educational Toolkit.
Over the last six months, the partnership (with support from Community Rail Network and the Decarbon8 Network) have developed and produced a series of ground-breaking materials that will support the national curriculum in teaching Key Stage Two students about sustainable travel.
With greener transport recognised as a fundamental part of the solution to the climate emergency, sustainability is a topic that we all need to be more aware of. These resources focus on the Key Stage Two age group, with an aim to encourage conversations around sustainability at home and influence the wider group of family and friends to choose sustainable travel.
The Sustainable Travel Education Toolkit is free for everyone to download below:
Daffnee Green – Travel With the Green Team Video: A video filled with facts and figures about how to travel more sustainably, highlighting advice for travelling by train from main character Daffnee as she talks through your journey with her.
Travel with the Green Team – Activity Sheet: A fun filled pack of activities for children to enjoy while learning about the benefits of traveling sustainably. An opportunity to draw your own green superhero, spot things that protect the planet on the station, and interact with Daffnee as she asks key questions about what’s best for our planet.
Sustainability with Daffnee Green – Teaching Presentation: A slideshow presentation that can be used within schools and groups to talk through the key lessons about sustainability and how we can all travel greener. This resource includes a pledge card that can be adapted to each child’s pledge.
The launch of the toolkit at the National Railway Museum saw representatives from Community Rail Network and Cross Country, as well as pupils from local Hempland Primary School. The event gave attendees the opportunity to see how the toolkit can be used within a teaching and learning environment and showed the impact it can have on young people.
