It’s International Walk to School Month. It is being marked by Living Streets ramping up their campaign calling on David Cameron to create a new walking generation. Over 2,000 people have now written to him, but they need to keep up the pressure.
With new figures showing every £1 spent on walking to school programmes brings £4 in health and transport benefits, we’ve got a really strong case. But in a time of tight budgets and with the government’s spending review just weeks away, we need to get walking higher up the political agenda.
Living Streets, is a UK charity for everyday walking. They want to create a walking nation where people of all generations enjoy the benefits that this simple act brings, on streets fit for walking. See more here.
