The winners of the annual Smarter Travel Awards were announced at an event at the Lighthouse Cinema, Dublin on Thursday April 28th. Partners of the Smarter Travel Workplaces and Smarter Travel Campus programme from around the country submitted projects that encourage sustainable and active travel modes on the commute and beyond.
Anne Graham, Chief Executive Officer at the National Transport Authority said: “We are delighted with the quality and quantity of entries into the Smarter Travel Student Awards this year. Sustainable travel on the commute to campus and beyond has multiple benefits including increased fitness, cost savings and cleaner air. Thanks to all the academic staff who have incorporated the awards into their curricula and we look forward to even more participation in the 2023 Student Awards”.
Entries are judged by an independent judging panel who are experts in their industry. Academic staff from third level colleges are encouraged to get involved with the Student Awards by incorporating Smarter Travel into their graded coursework. Not only does this give students the opportunity to participate in and experience the benefits of a practical project, but it also provides a platform to develop their CV and professional portfolio.
