The Scottish Government appointed Lee Craigie for a 15-month role on 13 June 2023 as the Ambassador for Active Travel for Scotland. As an evolution of her previous role as Active Nation Commissioner, continued to broaden and deepen the public conversation on active travel in Scotland.
Lee worked on public engagement during the Cycling World Championships and access to bikes and provided an independent view on active travel progress. Across both roles, Lee has been an instrumental advocate for walking, wheeling and cycling in Scotland – raising the profile of these inclusive and sustainable modes of travel, while promoting their heath, environmental, social and economic benefits, right across the country.
The 15-month role appointment concluded on 14 September 2023, and Lee has published a final report, which includes her observations about current active travel delivery in Scotland and her reflection on the role of Ambassador for Active travel, together with the assessment of her achievements.
