WOW

2 November 2021

Living Streets’ WOW – the walk to school challenge is back to help encourage as many children as possible to experience the benefits of walking to school.

WOW is a pupil-led behaviour-change initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day. If they travel sustainably (walk, wheel, cycle, scoot or Park and Stride), at least once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!

Walking to school helps children feel happier and healthier. They arrive refreshed, healthy and ready to learn. More families walking means fewer cars on the road, helping to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates.

If you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, you can Park and Stride to help your child earn their WOW badge.

One WOW badge can be earned for every month of the school year. For more information, click here visit here
