A better way to work

University staff members are invited to take part in a citywide sustainable travel challenge.

Bicycle and cycle racks

The A Better Way to Work Challenge is a free competition that encourages people based or working in Edinburgh to try a more environmentally friendly way of commuting.

Compete and win

The challenge runs from 7 to 27 February.

The University has signed up and by getting involved you can help us compare our results with those of other organisations around the city.

Prizes are available for teams that record the highest number of staff who leave their cars at home when travelling to work.

There are also individual spot prizes on offer, which include cinema tickets, organic vegetable boxes, hot air balloon trips, a spa day and a bike.

Alternative travel

To take part, staff members are encouraged to cycle, walk or travel by public transport to get to work.

Participants are asked to record online their journeys throughout the competition period.
