Active school travel: pathways to a healthy future presents an implementation proposal for one of ten national policy priorities developed by leading Australian population health experts to improve the health of all Australians.

This policy paper is the work of a national collaboration of leading experts, researchers and practitioners working in health, education, transport, public health and policy.

This three-part policy framework will support and encourage 3.7 million Australian school children, their families, carers and communities to be supported and participate in active travel to and from school.

Enabling Australia’s children to active travel - walking, cycling or scooting - is an essential component to a national strategy to increase physical activity and improve health for all generations, communities and individuals.
