International Walk To School Day/Month

International Walk to School 2014:
Wednesday, October 8 2014
IWALK Week October 6-10 2014
Or walk/wheel to school all month!
International Walk to School Month (IWALK) is a global annual, premier event of the Active & Safe Routes to School program, taking place each October. It is a mass celebration of active transportation and its related issues are used to introduce communities to the Active & Safe Routes to School (ASRTS) program. Visit iwalktoschool.org and the International Walk to SchoolFacebook page for more information.
“Our iWalk campaign re-emphasizes that preserving the environment requires everyone to collectively do their part in any way possible. As a whole, we can move mountains if we want too. This energy is the epitome of our efforts. We are calling everyone to take action in order to make our world a better place.” Peppi Kondilis-Minos, Vice-Principal, Bowmore Road JS Public School, Toronto
For many parents around the world, the car has become the main means of transporting children to and from school. The proportion of journeys to school made by car has increased considerably in the last several years, with the knock-off effect being a gradual decline in the numbers of children walking and wheeling to and from school on a regular basis. The general themes that are promoted during IWALK include: increasing daily physical activity, improving safety, enhancing the environment, reducing levels of crime, developing community cohesion, promoting social interaction and reducing traffic conges
