Earth Sciences win second place in the Workplace Travel Challenge

The team from l to r: Andrew Stephenson; Adam Scrivner; Lucy Matthews; Alison Holroyd; Helen Dingwall; Laura Bonesi and Jason Day. Sarah Finney and Ed Tipper were also part of the team (not pictured).

The goal was to do as many commutes as possible by active travel, mostly walking or cycling, rather than using means of transport that produce CO2. We were competing against 10 other teams from the University of Cambridge and we won 2nd place! We clocked an impressive 379 miles of active travel in six days and saved 132Kg of CO2 in the process.

As a department we are trying to encourage as much sustainable travel as possible and this initiative was part of our Green Impact activities. You can discover more information about our green impact initiatives on the Green Impact noticeboard in reception, or by visiting our Green Impact webpage.
