Walk to School: Video from Living Streets

Over 70% of today’s parents walked to school. Now, fewer than 50% of children walk to school. The Department for Transport has announced it’s cycling delivery plan, which includes a new target for 55% of primary school children to be walking to school by 2025, and is now out to consultation. Although this target was in a policy document about cycling, it’s the first time government has considered a target for walking.

70 per cent of parents

As Living Streets says, it’s essential that the target stays in there after the consultation, and then there will be a need to secure adequate funding to make the target achievable. This video from Living Streets shares some favourite memories of walking to school – the campaign will help today's children enjoy their walk to school and make some memories of their own.
