Home Children and Young People Walk to School Week

Walk to School Week

by Lisa Bennett

It’s national Walk to School Week 15th – 19th May 2023.

The five-day celebration is taking place during National Walking Month and is organised by Living Streets, a national walking charity whose mission is to inspire people to walk more.

This year’s theme is ‘Walk with Wildlife’ and children are encouraged to travel actively to school either walking, cycling or scooting. They’ll meet various animals along the way and learn about the important reasons to walk and the difference it can make for individuals, communicates and the planet.
