Walk the Globe

About

Share the fun and learning of walking to school with communities around the world!

Every year students from around the world walk or bike to school during October, International Walk to School month. Walk the Globe is the first initiative designed to connect these students through classroom partnerships. Using photos, videos, emails or Skype, classrooms can share their walk or bike to school experiences with other students around the world. DASH coordinates classroom partnerships to start in October. These partnerships can last as long as you and your partner classroom would like. Learning about and connecting with another classroom makes walking and biking to school fun, educational, and memorable!
