VicHealth’s Walk to School campaign is an annual, high profile event held in October that encourages primary school students across Victoria to engage in school active travel (walking, riding and scooting) as often as possible.

The primary audience of the campaign is Victorian primary school students, however the campaign also aims to engage carers of primary school children as well as primary schools and local councils.

This report was prepared by Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN) and Deakin University and provides insights, learnings and recommendations based on the success of Walk to School 2016.
