Taking Action on Active School Travel in Manitoba (1 hour, $50): In one generation, children have gone from mostly walking to school to mostly being driven. Find out what this means for our kids’ health and development, as well as our pocketbooks, and what we can do to get kids mobile again. This presentation is tailored to specific audiences (e.g.) parents, teachers, administrators)

Walking School Buses and Bike Trains (1 hour, $50): Many parents say they would allow their children to walk to school if they weren’t alone, and kids like walking with their friends. Whether led by parents or a school, walking school buses—and their cycling equivalents, bike trains—help get everyone on board. 

Air Quality Health Index (AQHI): What’s hiding in our air? (1 hour, $50): Idling cars and congestion around schools produce emissions that are harmful to developing bodies. This interactive classroom presentation teaches us how and why to keep our air free of pollution that makes us sick.

School Travel Planning (1 hour, $50): There are so many reasons why kids aren’t active on their way to school.  A School Travel Plans (STP) is a 2-year process that identifies and addresses the physical and intangible barriers in the communities surrounding the school. We guide you through the STP process you can perform your own or enlist our help (funding permitting)

Bike Blender Presentation ($100/hour with facilitation and ingredients provided, or rent it outright for $100 plus $500 deposit): Who needs electricity? Make delicious smoothies for your class using pedal power.
