More than 70% of today's parents walked to school. 
Less than half of children walk to school today.

That's why we see the government new goal to ensure 55% of children walk to school by 2025 as a giant step in the right direction.

We want to let them know we think this is great news. This is the first time government has considered a target for walking, so we need ensure it stays in the plan. It's a first step towards making walking safer and easier for everyone.

The 55% target is just one proposal in the government's new cycling and walking plan which is open for consultation now, so we need to make sure they keep it. 

Email the Department for Transport

  • Let them know you welcome the 55% target and hope they adopt it in full and provide investment to make it happen.
