Knowle West Media Centre was Highly Commended in the Most Improved Travel and Transport Category at the Go Green 2016 Awards this February.
Geographically, we know that KWMC can be a difficult location for some to get to – up a steep hill and south of the city centre. As an organisation we have been trying hard to reduce the number of single-person car journeys and the number of cars in our car park.
Our Green Actions have included getting an electric bike for staff to travel to local meetings, starting a car share scheme and taking part in Big Commuting Challenge where we came third in our category. We’ve also had a team cycle day which encouraged three members of staff who had not cycled for years to get back on a bike.
Staff have embraced alternative methods of transport – with numbers cycling and using public transport increasing and we hope to encourage visitors to our site to take up the challenge too!
We picked up our laser-cut award at The Bristol Hotel on 18th February. The awards were manufactured in our making space KWMC: The Factory – our technicians did a good job at keeping it a secret from the wider team and we’re all delighted with the award!
