Canny Commuting

How to be a Canny Commuter - webinar series

Our Canny Commuting webinars are half-hour lunchtime Zoom meet-ups, where each episode focuses on a different aspect of active and sustainable commuting. The hosts are some of our resident active commuters here in the My Journey team, who will be able to give you the benefit of their experience and answer your questions, so you can become a canny commuter too. 

Given that many of us are now considering a return to commuting for all or part of the week, we hope you will encourage your staff and colleagues to join the informal, friendly and chatty webinars (and webinar recordings).
