Hawthorn's Active Travel & ModeShift STARS
Modeshift STARS is the Centre of Excellence for the delivery of Effective Travel Plans in Education, Business and Residential settings. The scheme recognises schools, businesses and other organisations that have shown excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable and active travel.
Launched in 2008, the STARS Education scheme is supported by the Department for Transport and has seen over 1,400 schools in England achieve accreditation since its inception. As of January 2020, 69 local authorities are participating in the scheme with well over 3,500 schools registered nationally. In the Autumn and Spring of each year, schools, local authorities and key partners come together for the National STARS School Travel Awards which recognise the outstanding schools from each local authority.
