WE HAVE A BIG AMBITION:
EVERY CHILD THAT CAN, WALKS TO SCHOOL.
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.
We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice. And we need your help.
Find out about the ways Living Streets Scotland gets children walking more, the fab tools we provide for teachers and parents, and our groundbreaking campaigning work that all underpin our vision of a new walking generation.
Pupils record how they get to school on the WOW Travel Tracker and those who walk once per week for a month are rewarded with a themed badge.
It's simple to run, fun and easy to take part. Just a few minutes of a teacher's day is all it takes to make a big difference.
And together with our free monthly curriculum-aligned learning resources and assembly presentations, WOW will help develop healthy lifelong habits.
Wear the shoes that make you happy, have fun and help us create safer, walkable streets for all.
Five-day Walking Challenge
Our five-day walking challenge is designed to offer primary school pupils a burst of walking activity.
Month-long Walking Challenge
Help primary school pupils start to feel the benefits of regular activity by taking part in our month-long challenge.
It’s been proven that children who do some form of exercise, especially a walk before school, do better in class because they arrive refreshed, fit and ready to learn.
During morning peak traffic times, one in five cars on the road are taking children school, contributing to congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions.
If you’re a parent or carer there are lots of ways we can help get your and your family walking.
Sign up for our tailored emails and we can help make walking safer and easier in your neighbourhood and get more children at your kids’ school walking.
