The Active and Safe Routes to School Program in Manitoba successfully hosted our second webinar series fall and winter 2013/2014 in conjunction with the After The School Bell Rings project. This 5 session series was based on questions often asked in communities and projects done around Manitoba that are trying to encourage youth to walk or cycle. The webinar sessions were archived and are easily accessible to watch from your own computer. Please find the session detail below and the archive links to access the presentations.
