During The Blekinge Trip, groups of 12 years old children travel for a day within their region with buses and trains. They learn to plan their trip with their teacher and they report their trip by delivering a poster or a film to the public transport provider. The project was launched in 1998 in the municipality of Helsingborg and 10 000 children have been on the Skåne trip for 10 years. In 2011, taking inspiration from Helsingborg, the city of Karlskrona, the Swedish Transport Administration, Blekingetrafiken (local public transport provider) and the Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden did a pilot implementation of the Blekinge trip in spring 2011 for 2 school classes.
