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 things relatives, teachers and neighbours can do.
Band together with neighbours and take turns in taking the children to school.
School-based encouragement like "Discounts on school dinners, fruit given to them on arrival or chance to leave school five minutes earlier or first to be allowed to queue up to leave at the end of the day.”
Setting up a reward scheme can really help get children on their feet.
Our year-round walk to school challenge – WOW – does just that. Find out more about WOW.
In Australia, projects that encourage whole communities to walk more, creating busier, more vibrant streets, are a key approach to getting more children walking to school
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.
