Across Ireland, data shows that just one in every 250 teenage girls cycle to school every day. The #andshecycles campaign, from Green-Schools Ireland, aims to recruit more ambassadors from around Ireland to get more girls using pedal power to get to school!
Who can apply?
The #andshecycles Ambassador Programme is open to students in schools that are actively working on, or have completed, the Green-Schools Travel and/or Global Citizenship Travel themes.
The #andshecycles Ambassador Programme is inclusive and aims to build a supportive environment for all chosen ambassadors. Students can apply as an individual or as part of a team (max three people per theme) however, each team member must submit their own application form.
