School Streets: enabling active travel to school in Greater Manchester (TfGM and Walk Ride GM)

Find out more about travel to school across Greater Manchester (GM) and approaches being taken to enable more children to walk, wheel, and cycle to school.

Open to all, especially those wanting to learn more about School Streets and supporting active travel in their community. You will hear from a range of speakers, sharing real life examples and practical advice for setting up School Streets and other behaviour change initiatives.

Our speakers will discuss some of the challenges around School Streets and offer workable solutions. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, and we will share guidance and toolkits to support enabling active travel to school.

Join us and help raise the ambition to get more children and young people active on the journey to school!
