7 October is International Walk to School Day

October is the International Walk to School Month, and 7 October is the International Walk to School Day, when communities all over the world rally their students to walk safely to and from school. This international initiative promotes safe, environmentally-friendly transportation routes and is a special opportunity to teach young people, the most vulnerable of road users, smart pedestrian behavior.

Currently, organizations from 70 countries are coordinating with their communities to promote safe walking routes to school on International Walk to School Day. It is opportunity to promote KNPO's THE BEAD INITIATIVE – A BRIGHT IDEA!
