The Riot Act Theatre
Thank you to ‘The Riot Act’ for delivering a fun and interactive theatre-in-education project that promoted the benefits of sustainable travel and improving air quality.
The objectives of the project were to:
- To promote safe and active travel and to encourage healthy and sustainable travel habits for the future.
- To raise awareness of the danger of carbon emissions caused by traffic outside of school.
- To highlight the key health, social and environmental benefits of choosing sustainable travel over the car.
Some interesting facts:
Walking to school is a key step to becoming more independent.
25% of all car journeys are under two miles.
75% of parents find driving their child to school more stressful than being at work.
Carbon emissions inside the car are at a higher level than outside.
Walking to school stimulates the brain and helps us to be better learners.
