Let's see how fun a low carbon commute can be.  Having an event is a great way for people to try out a more sustainable way of getting to school without having to fully commit.  If you hold these events regularly however, they'll see that a low carbon commute is not only better for the planet, it's best for us too!

Here are some ideas to get you started thinking about a theme day:

Hold a breakfast event with free pastries/rolls if you come to school in a low carbon way.
Organise a bike or walking bus on the main routes to school and commute to school in a  low carbon group.  Make some noise!
Decorate your bikes and scooters 
Pair your low carbon commute event with a bike repair, cycling lessons or bike security tagging event.
Cover transportation themed activities and games in your lessons
Hold an assembly or parade to celebrate all the low carbon commutes
Give each low carbon commuter a ticket for a prize draw raffle
Run a Lucky Lock event - where a lock is put on on a bike or scooter at random and the owner wins a prize.

What other ideas do you have?  Make sure you record this activity when you've done it so we can share your ideas with schools around the country!
