In 2020 Cycling Scotland and Transport Scotland commissioned Children in Scotland to engage with children and young people about its Bikeability programme and more widely to share their opinions and experiences on road safety and health and wellbeing.
Children in Scotland worked with the children and young people in 2 phases.
Phase 1 involved nine children and young people from across Scotland in a national co-design group. They met five times online in summer 2020 and completed activities and games to consider their priorities in relation to cycling. They also designed the activities for the activity pack for Phase 2.
Six primary schools from three areas of Scotland took part in Phase 2. This involved 300 children with a range of interests and experiences
Children in Scotland analysed the data from the children and have summarised the findings the children shared under key themes and Children in Scotland made recommendations for next steps for Cycling Scotland and Transport, which was drafted into the final report.
