Walking, cycling or scooting to school has many benefits. It helps children lead an active and healthy lifestyle; it can provide benefits to mental health; it helps reduce congestion and pollution, and help to tackle climate change; it helps children learn to make positive lifestyle choices as they grow up; it teaches them independence.
My Journey aims to encourage walking, cycling or scooting to school wherever possible. To promote the benefits of sustainable travel to schools, we work with schools to set up walking buses and park and stride locations, run competitions and sustainable/road safety assemblies and take part in regular national events such as The Big Pedal and Walk to School Week.
We also work with schools to create and monitor school travel plans using the Modeshift STARS platform.
