Calling all Noosa Shire Primary Schools - applications are now open to be part of the 2018 Noosa Council Walk-and-Ride to School Program.
The Walk-and-Ride to School Program is a voluntary travel behaviour change program that aims to reduce congestion by encouraging primary school children and their parents/carers to walk, cycle, scoot, skate board, catch the bus or carpool to school.
Even replacing one car trip a week with a sustainable transport mode can make a difference!
Why join the Noosa Council Walk-and Ride to School Program?
- Reduce traffic congestion and parking issues around your school
- Increase physical activity and well-being of students
- Improve safety around your school – less cars makes the school a safer place
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from car travel
What is involved?
A Noosa Council Walk-and-Ride to School Project Officer will work closely with your school to identify how students currently travel to school, and together with the school, through a range of fun activities and events, identify ways to encourage more families to travel sustainably.
For full details on what is involved please refer to the attached Walk and Ride to School Factsheet.
