Sustainable and active travel
We've teamed up with Sustrans Scotland to launch a new activity pack with lots of programme ideas to help inspire our members to get active outdoors, explore your local neighbourhood and improve health and wellbeing.
We know that lockdown increased the popularity of getting outdoors – whether walking, cycling or wheeling and we hope that these activities will build on that enthusiasm.
The pack includes lots of activities from learning about engineering to how to make sure your bike is safe. It also encourages Scouts to look after the National Cycle Network by doing community impact projects. The activity pack also highlights the badges that link to each activity.
I’m so pleased that Sustrans Scotland and Scouts Scotland have got together to help young people get active, learn about safety and sustainability and most importantly have fun. Let's inspire a generation to get out there, learn some great skills and enjoy our beautiful landscapes.
