Stay Safe, Get Active


Although June’s 10 day Active Travel challenge has had to be cancelled this year, not all is lost. Our South Yorkshire ModeshiftSTARS team has been busy behind the scenes working with partners to bring you an alternative fantastic competition, free and open to all young people in South Yorkshire.


It is a new #StaySafeGetActive competition in partnership with Great Britain's most decorated female Paralympian, and current Sheffield City Region Active Travel Commissioner, Dame Sarah Storey (see video link below), and Travel South Yorkshire’s Active Travel Team.  This is the brief:


We want to encourage children and families to remember the positive things that we are learning at this time and to consider how we take these lessons forward to ensure that we continue to lead safer, healthier and greener lives in future.


To achieve this, we are inviting children and young people from across South Yorkshire to create a story, poem, poster or comic strip about the positive changes in our lives (eg, staying healthy and active together, reduction in air pollution, roads have less cars etc) during this time and how we can inspire our families to continue these activities as part of our daily lives when schools and workplaces re-open.  See the attached flyer for more information.
