The 'Walk One A Week' programme encourages over 400,000 children across the UK to walk to school at least one day each week.
The ‘Walk One A Week’ programme encourages over 400,000 children across the UK to walk to school at least one day each week. This hugely successful initiative is just one part of Living Streets’ wider engagement with schools and also of their national walk to school campaign, which also includes ‘Walk to School Week’ and the new one day event ‘Happy Shoesday’. As well as these behaviour change programmes, Living Streets conducts school route audits and will work with you how to promote change to the streets surrounding your school creating safer, quieter and more pleasant routes for children to walk. The Living Streets’ Park and Stride schemes create opportunities for those living further away from the school to walk part of their journey and keep the school gates from becoming congested. And who knows, if you’re working with us you might just get a visit from our loveable mascot Strider too.
