HOW ARE YOU TRAVELLING?
Everyone benefits from walking. Walking is great for both physical and mental health.
Did you know that walking to school with your kids can help reduce congestion in and around the school gate, and help improve road safety? Walking can also help to provide cleaner air for our kids to breathe.
We also know that when kids are active, they do better at school. They are more confident and focused, they build stronger bones and muscles, and enjoy higher levels of self-esteem and confidence.
The ‘How are you Travelling?’ campaign encourages students, parents, teachers and community members to make walking part of their daily routine. Walking benefits all Queenslanders.
You can get involved by sharing the video or simply putting one foot in front of the other and going for a walk, roll or stroll!
