Sustrans Scotland: Working it out Workplace Webinars

Posted: 28th May 2020

Our homes, once our sanctuary, have been transformed into the epicentre of everything we now do. Work, schooling, socialising and exercising all now occur under the same roof. With no acclimatisation period or forewarning our lives have evolved dramatically in the last few months.

Sustrans Scotland and Way to Work are delighted to announce a series of interactive events which are designed to holistically support you during the period of lockdown and beyond.   We are excited to be partnering with a range of inspiring speakers including Olympians, business leaders, charitable founders and coaches covering topics such as resilience and motivation. The series aims to provide you with skills that you need to evaluate, plan and adapt to modern life, increase levels of physical activity and make positive changes. Each event takes place between 12.30 – 1.30 pm  every Wednesday for the next four weeks.
