To mark International Walk to School Month last year, we asked for your smart ideas to get more children walking.
Here are some of the best which focus on what the government and councils can do to make streets around our schools fitter for walking.
If we made it mandatory to have all childen arrive in school buses like those used in the USA, Scotland and Ireland, parents could not then use cars and there would be far less traffic.
Catchment schools have to be the answer. The high school students where I live come from miles around, this causes major disruption.
Everyone should be able to cross the road safely. Find out more about where we stand on crossings: Visit Safer Crossings
To mark International Walk to School Month we will be talking to communities, supporters and organisations around the world to find out how they’re reversing this worrying trend.
It could be a scheme you have seen in your area or further afield. It could be a clever idea you have come up with yourself - or perhaps you have recently started walking to school yourselves.
Let us know so we can reverse the decline in walking to school.
