Moving Peel Kids Safely School Travel
The Heart & Stroke Foundation and Brampton Kids on Bikes invited Region of Peel school planning stakeholders to a follow up to our December 4th webinar & workshop on Active and Sustainable School Travel (ASST).
Here are the results of our workshop:
- Heart & Stroke Health Promotion Specialist Bill McBain kicked off our workshop with an introduction.
- David Laing presented an update of Brampton Kids on Bikes and reviewed our Dec 4th workshop results
- We were honoured to have George Mammen, a University of Toronto Doctoral candidate share a summary of his 4-years research from around North America.
- We had an opportunity to learn how York Region has successfully handled school planning in a cooperative manner. Teija Cumming and Sonja Sonita shared their experience.
- A group workshop followed, where we discussed, debated and planned a direction for the best use of our resources in Peel.
- A complementary lunch was provided as we continued with our networking!
“You changed my life after your February Brampton Kids on Bikes presentation. My kids walk to school now. I was the parent who would have driven my children to university. I want to start a walking school bus program at my kids’ school.”
– Michelle Shaw, Brampton parent
