Resources for teachers
The key to improving activity levels, the environment and reducing congestion around schools is to educate and inspire children. It is important to teach children both the practical and safety aspects of making a journey sustainably. By giving children the confidence in their ability to make everyday journeys independently and safely, and the knowledge needed to make sustainable choices, children can be empowered to develop life-long sustainable habits.
