The Swedish participants of the "Ga och cycla till Skolan/Walk and bike to school" Campaign of course joined us again. 


The campaign, organized by Trafik Kalendern, wants to inspire pupils, parents and teachers to travel in a smarter and healthier way - simply by walking, cycling and public transport! The activity is intended for all Swedish students and educators in year F-6.


During any two weeks in September-October, the participating schools gather as many respoäng (travel points, divided into "Gröna, Gula e Röda Prickar") as possible by walking, cycling or taking public transport to and from school.


The purpose of the challenge is to not only promote the health of children and young people, but also to contribute to a better environment and road safety.


In 2019, the children from 232 schools were involved, cycling, running or using public transport to get to school. A total of 33,979 children took part in the Swedish campaign and were really diligent!

There are 330,972 climate-friendly Footprints from Sweden, but this is only an interim result of this year's "Ga och cycla till Skolan" campaign.

In addition to collecting "gröna e orange Prickar", some schools could compete with other schools in a local competition for a local prize organised by the respective municipality, e.g. Tyresö, Hudiksvalls, Uppsala and many more. The winners will be awarded a prize money for the school.
