Six bloggers, six weeks, one challenge: to change the way they travel

A lively new blogging website – Travelling Tales - will feature regular blogs from a small group of people across Scotland taking on the challenge to switch to a more low carbon form of transport for six weeks.  They will share their experiences of this change, highlighting the good and bad aspects of using low carbon transport.

Much more effort is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector, which accounts for a quarter of total emissions in Scotland.  This will be essential to ensure our country plays its fair part in tackling climate change.
 
Transport choices affect all of us.  We all need to move about, whether that’s popping down to the shops, commuting to work, taking children to school or going on holiday.  Everyone uses transport in one form or another.  The travel choices we make have an impact on the environment, including our individual and collective carbon footprints.
 
The Travelling Tales website will share some real life stories about transport choices.  Our bloggers will tell you what happens as they make these changes, the obstacles and benefits, how they felt at the time and afterwards.
