The Walk 21 Conference in Vancouver had a pre-conference day on Active and Safe Routes to School hosted by HASTE (the Hub for Action on School Transportation Emissions), the local organizing body for ASRTS in BC, which brought in 50 participants from across Canada and around the world to talk about our work, highlight some best practices and share success stories and dreams.

You can read HASTE’s blog post here to find out just what happened. And be sure to check out the wicked mural that graphic facilitator Avril Orloff created as part of the day. It was magic! She drew, coloured and sketched as the speakers spoke and made something really beautiful and inspiring.

All in all, it was a great day!
