The 4th SRTS National Conference Heads West
The 4th Safe Routes to School National Conference is making its way to California’s state capital this Summer. The first state to enact SRTS legislation in 1999, California has played a key role in the birth of the Safe Routes to School movement and remains a national leader in SRTS strategies. The Sacramento region — home to many innovative SRTS programs and land use and transportation policies, as well as its extensive trail system and many recreational opportunities — provides the perfect venue for this event.
Join us on the West Coast this summer for this not-to-be-missed national conference focused on providing safe, convenient and fun opportunities for children to bike and walk to school!
The Safe Routes to School movement has come a long way in a very short time and is resulting in healthier schools and communities throughout the nation. I see that growth reflected in the Safe Routes to School conference too, both in the number of participants and in the breadth of sectors and champions that are represented. The Safe Routes to School conference is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to learn, network, get inspired and then go back home and strengthen their Safe Routes to School efforts.
