STARS getting children on their bikes
The European project STARS (Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for Schools) gathers nine implementation partners around one common goal: to increase the number of pupils cycling to and from school, who would previously have been escorted by car.
STARS is setting up an accreditation scheme for primary schools and a peer-to-peer scheme for secondary schools where the students themselves are directly involved in encouraging fellow students to choose more sustainable travel modes. They also participate in a pan-european cycling challenge.
You will find more information about STARS on www.starseurope.org where you can also sign up for the STARS Newsletter.
