In School Walking & Wheeling Skills Training Project

Written by Jamie Stuckless of Stuckless Consulting Inc. 

Green Communities Canada and Stuckless Consulting Inc. have partnered on a new project focused on walking & wheeling skills training in schools. The core objective of the project is to enable efficient collaboration across communities on the delivery of in-school training by providing expert guidance, as well as access to vetted processes and tools.

The project officially launched in September 2021, and will run until the end of March 2022 with two key project deliverables:

  • A best practices audit and report on existing walking & cycling skills training programs across Canada
  • The creation of an online resource hub to share curated content that supports the Active School Travel (OAST) network in implementing local walking & cycling skills training programs

We look forward to updating you on the project as it develops!
