Liftshare Week 2022

We are taking part in Liftshare Week, from Monday 3rd – Sunday 9th October.

This year we will be stepping back in time and remembering when fuel was significantly cheaper. With the cost of living on everyone’s mind, we all know it’s the small things that make the big differences. If you can’t bike or walk to work have you thought about liftsharing?

At Harwell we have over 900 members signed up for the Liftshare programme, creating huge positive impacts to the environmental wellbeing of our community. Over 500 available journeys to share, ranging from local Oxfordshire based journeys, all the way to London, Bristol and even Newcastle.

This amazing work over the past 4 years has resulted in 1.9 million miles of travel time saved, nearly £500,000 in fuel costs and a whopping 419.84 tonnes of CO2 reduction.

We know tangible action is the only way to make a genuine difference and achieve the Sustainable Development goals. Tackling the climate crisis is a key part of the research and innovation we conduct on campus.

If you want to take part in Liftshare Week please sign up to our Liftshare programme here and start your own journey. Change your commuting habits and cut your fuel costs in half.
