It was not that long ago that children everywhere started their morning with an energizing walk to school. Today, only one in ten children have such a good start to their day. Driven to school in cars, many children’s first part of the day is gridlock traffic and a parent’s rush-hour stress, only to be dropped off in a sea of idling cars.
Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Alameda County provides trainings, resources, and customized support at no cost; while working together with schools, parents, and the local community to give kids an active, healthy start to the school day.
SR2S is an effort coordinated by the Transportation and Land Use Coalition (TALC). TALC hired me to design the SR2S logo and printed materials.
