Feb 12 @ DLA Piper
[33 Arch St. Boston]
Do you remember walking to school as a kid?
In 1969, about half of all American children walked or biked to school, today that number is less than 15%. As a result, kids today are less active, less independent and less healthy. Not only are children today less likely to get their recommended amount of daily activity, but the morning rush of cars during pick up and drop off makes the air around schools thick with pollution. Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are designed to reverse this trend.
Join us on Tuesday Feb 12th to hear how WalkBoston is teaming up with MAPC to create a survey and mapping tool that helps target new Safe Routes to School programs to the communities where SRTS will make the most difference.
As a special treat guests will get a sneak peek at WalkBoston's new documentary on the Safe Routes to School program in Revere!
Food and drinks will be provided! RSVP today.
