The Annual National Smarter Travel Seminar took place on Thursday May 12th in the Ashling Hotel, Dublin. There were 85 people in attendance from various campuses and workplaces across the country. The title of this year’s seminar was Practical Measures to Increasing Wellbeing through Active Travel, with eight speakers invited to present on measures completed in their own campus or workplace.
Splitting behavioural change into two simple categories, the speakers were divided into two panels, the first of whom presented in the morning, illustrating practical examples of promoting Self-Efficacy Enablers. Seán Collins presented a range of measures that have been implemented to promote Smarter Travel at the University of Limerick. UL is the National Smarter Travel Campus of Year which led to much interest in the presentations highlights. The afternoon presentations focused on illustrating practical examples of promoting Environmental Enablers.
Following the presentations all people present were encouraged to discuss, in a round-table format, what they had learned from the day. Attendees left the seminar with practical ideas that they might be able to implement in their own workplace or campus.
