Sometimes it can take a childs-eye view to see how we can do things better, and a new competition for young budding transport planners, launched today, is intended to take advantage of this to help us speed up the decarbonisation of transport and in particular of the school run.

The national walking charity Living Streets is teaming up with the Transport Planning Society to offer a prize for the best poster designed by a child of primary school age showing environmentally friendly ways to travel to school.

The competition is open to children from throughout the UK aged between 4 and 11 and runs until Monday 5th October. The winner will be awarded a prize voucher and a separate gift for their school. The winning poster will be professionally designed and published in an ebook, as well as being showcased at the annual Transport Planning Day event on 16th November.

If additional sponsors - firms or individuals - can be found, there will also be runner-up prizes for both children and schools.

Each year's Transport Planning Day is based around a different theme, and this year's will be focusing on the role of transport planners in tackling climate change and creating a sustainable, healthy future. The transport sector is now the UK's leading source of greenhouse gas emissions, meaning that transport planners at the forefront of addressing the climate crisis.
