The Walk to school project has started!

5. Sep 2020

The Walk to School project - http://www.iwalktoschool.org/ - began in the beginning of September and will formally end with the International Walk to School Day on Wednesday October 7th. The aim of the project is to encourage children to adopt an active mode of transport to and from school and to increase their ability to travel safely in traffic.

Participants in over 40 countries

Every year, millions of children in over 40 countries around the world participate in Walk to School in one way or another. In Iceland, participation has grown steadily and in the first year there were 26 participating schools, but a total of 74 schools registered for the game in 2019.

The Health Town of Hafnarfjörður encourages all schools in Hafnarfjörður, parents and children to actively participate in the project! It's healthy and good to walk to school!
