The SHAPE (Safe Healthy Active People Everywhere) Resource Manual to support the Active and Safe Routes to School program in Alberta is designed to provide information, resources and ideas for school communities to encourage their students to walk or bike to school.
In includes some practical ideas and steps to help you organize activities at your school. Please remember they are only ideas and we hope you use them to plan activities and events at your school based on your school communities' needs and wants.
Our experience has shown that after an event day such as International Walk to School week there is an increase in the number of students walking or biking to school. Remember no matter how small your start is that it is a step in the right direction.
