Green Communities Canada officially launched the iCANwalk Campaign on Friday, September 10th, to run through March 2011. The purpose of iCANwalk is to:
The campaign promotes individual actions to walk and bike less as well as community programs, such as starting an Active and Safe Routes to School program.
Individuals can take the iCANwalk pledge to replace automobile trips with walking or biking. The campaign also provides a Walkabiltiy Checklist that individuals can use to determine how safe and accessible their communities are. The Checklist is easy to complete: Just go for a walk and pay attention to how easy or difficult your walk was, who and what you saw, if you had fun and if you felt safe.
