Walking initiatives including the WSB

Every morning over 250,000 children travel to Auckland schools and half of these trips are made by car. Parking hassles, traffic congestion, air pollution and lack of exercise are some of the issues that all these car trips cause. A school travel plan is a set of practical actions which aims to improve road safety and reduce car trips. It is developed and implemented by the whole school community in partnership with ARTA and the local council. These actions involve promoting sustainability in line with the four E's - Engineering, Enforcement, Education and Encouragement. Walking initiatives and walking school buses are a very important ways of encouraging behaviour change. This session will explore some of the successes of the programme.
