Bring more People Power into your Life!
People Power, the Active Transportation & Healthy Communities Program, aims to motivate, support and encourage residents to safely walk, roll and cycle more often.
The program runs in tandem with community-led infrastructure investments and data collection programs across the region. It supports the implementation of the 2011 CRD Pedestrian & Cycling Master Plan the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan and one of the 2015 – 2018 Board Strategic Priorities.
People Power uses a collective impact model to harness the skills and knowledge of partner organizations and encourage the use of active transportation for commuting and recreation. Led by the CRD and its partners, the program is made possible with support from the Victoria Foundation and the Traffic Safety Commission.
Way2Go! Students Spring into Active Travel
Kindergarten to Grade 12 students will be encouraged to use active transportation on their way to and from school,
May 7-17, 2018. They are invited to share their stories through social media and a poster-making contest to win prizes.
Research shows most kids need to be more active. Walking, cycling, boarding and taking public transit all improve health, well being and school performance.
Way2Go! is led by Island Health and the University of Victoria and funded by People Power. Check out this fun video they made!
