Sustainable Development Goals

We support the ambitions of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals.

The vision of the Global Goals international action plan is to set out a positive vision for the future - to tackle poverty and inequality and promote sustainable development across the world.  There are 17 Global Goals which form the basis of a global partnership for sustainable development.

The work of Stirling Active Travel Hub contributes to 10 of these goals:

  • Active travel hubs support people to travel in clean, affordable and healthy ways.
  • Active travel can improve both physical and mental health.
  • Urban areas with less vehicle traffic tend to be more cohesive and neighbourly with reduced levels of noise pollution and congestion.
  • Short commutes of around 5 miles to work each day can contribute to reduced levels of carbon dioxide emissions and combat global climate change.
  • A move away from car trips brings more safety for all, not just cyclists.
