Getting Tomorrow's Leaders Walking, Today
The International Walk to School Day aims to keep kids active and healthy, to improve air quality and the environment by reducing the number of car and bus trips, and to over time create more safe routes to walk and bike to school by enhancing the urban environment with traffic calming measures. This year, about 4,000 schools across the United States participated in Walk to School Day according to the National Center for Safe Routes to School and our friends at StreetFilms shot the short video above about the experience of one school in NYC.
