Walk to School Month
International Walk to School Month first took place in 2011;
The goal of this day means many different things for many different people.
For some it promotes change for safer and improved streets whilst for others, it might be to promote a healthier lifestyle and an attempt to reduce their carbon footprint.
From the first official walk all the way back in 2011 to now, millions of people from all parts of their local community all take part in over 40 countries around the world. And since then, Living Streets have also joined in with the Walk to School Initiative; all to help create a safer environment for those kids and parents that choose to walk to school.
