Walk to School Week

May 11th 2021| Michael Mountford

Walk to School Week

Walk to School Week 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.

What is Walk To School Week?

To get a better sense of what Walk to School Week is all about, take a look at this video created by Living Streets.

How to Get Involved

If you’re looking for ways in which you can get your school involved, then take a look below for some great bits of inspiration.

Five Day Walking Challenge

Living Streets have provided some classroom packs and resources all with the purpose of making the children feel more empowered to change their environment for the better.

Happy Shoesday!!!

Happy Shoesday is a fundraising event set up by Living Streets in order to raise money to create safer streets for all.

Other examples of great work!
