#KusiekChats – Active School Travel
Physical activity and creating an environment that empowers kids is important. In this episode Julie chats with guests Tracey and Marcel about current successes towards active school travel. We’ll also be touching on opportunities to more equitably create an environment that is safe and welcoming for students and staff to actively travel to school.
