Getting Involved

What We Can Do

Whether you are a Parent, Student, Teacher, School Administrator, or member of our community, there are a number of ways you can get involved and get this initiative rolling.

So to all community members in the Halton Region, gear up, tighten those laces, and buckle up your favourite helmet, and let’s be active as a community.

PARENTS & GUARDIANS

IDEAS TO ACTIVATE YOUR COMMUNITY

  1. Go for a walk or a bike ride with your child. Mention things you are doing (or better yet, things that your child is doing) that make it easier to travel alongside other people on the street or on the trail.
  2. Organize your community by coordinating a walkabout
  3. Set up a community walking school bus
  4. Watch for children and youth walking and biking to school when you’re driving

STUDENTS

HAVING FUN GETTING AROUND

  1. Go for a walk or a bike ride in your neighbourhood with a caring adult you trust. Ask about things you’re not sure about when walking or biking alongside other people on the street or the trail.
  2. Walk to school. Invite your friends to join you!
  3. Become a walking buddy for a younger student, and show them the ropes on how to get to school safely, but most of all, having fun doing it.

TEACHERS AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION

ANOTHER SPIN ON ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

  1. Promote walking and cycling events
  2. Communicate walking and cycling messaging to families
  3. Connect to the curriculum
