Encouraging Active Transportation for Children

May 31, 2022 - -

Active transportation, such as waking, biking and wheeling, is a sustainable form of mobility that not only gets us to where we want to go but also improves our physical and mental wellbeing. It’s also a step toward climate action and Vision Zero. We need to create and sustain active spaces for children to get to and from school and move though their communities safely.

Join Parachute as we discuss children and active transportation with Dr. Leigh Vanderloo, Scientific Director at ParticipACTION; Dr. Alison Macpherson, Professor, Faculty of Health at York University; and Dr. Suzanne Beno, Paediatric Emergency Medicine Physician at the Hospital for Sick Children.
