Walking Campaigns are used to encourage active transportation to and from school and educate the school community on the benefits of doing so. Having regular walking and wheeling promotional campaigns and events throughout the school year can increase the likelihood of results and success.
International Walk to School Day / Week/ Month in October, also known as iWalk, is a great way to kick off the promotion of active transportation for a school year. Other events throughout the year could include Walk & Wheel Wednesdays, Winter Walk Day (February), Earth Week (April), Spring into Spring, Environment Week (June) and Summer Safety Week to make walking and wheeling events a celebration throughout the year!
