Intelligent Health has appointed a new eco travel officer for Wokingham
Wokingham residents who encourage their children to walk, cycle and scoot to school are about to get a helping hand to lower pollution and improve their health thanks to a new eco travel officer.
Chloe Ennis has been appointed at Intelligent Health to work with the My Journey Wokingham campaign where she will work with Wokingham Borough Council to promote active and sustainable travel for schools.
Her role will now be to work closely with schools in Wokingham, Finchampstead and Twyford to encourage more families to leave the car at home and to help address the issues of climate change, congestion and air quality.
Chloe is passionate about sustainability and making a positive impact on the planet. Keen to lead by example, she travels around the Wokingham area from school to school by bike and has a wealth of experience in zero waste, empowerment, ethical and sustainable brands.
During the gap year of her fashion degree, her placement took her to Ahmedabad in India where she worked with a women’s empowerment textile organisation.
She said: “This not only allowed me to see how organisations like this were needed to treat garment workers fairly in the textile industry but also how a country might look that is heavily polluted by transport, factories, waste and more. The impact is devastating to health and the environment but to also to simply look at too. On the other side it was amazing to see the initiatives and non-profit organisations and how they are working to tackle such issues.”
She said: “Intelligent Health is well-known for its award-winning behaviour change campaigns, in particular the popular Beat the Street programme. I like how the role can benefit both health and the environment and I hope this post can ultimately achieve a change in attitude towards our health and the environment in a positive way.”
