Zozo wants you to Walk to School!
For those of you who do not yet know him - meet Zozo! He's Livable Streets' big purple friend who loves anything that gets people out of cars and moving about the streets. You might find him riding his ZoGo along the new PPW bike lane, sitting out in the pedestrian plaza in Union Square or catching the 4 train to amble about the city. Or right here on Streetfilms in the next few months as he talks about the best "Way to Go!"
So, what better way to mark this year’s International Walk to School Day on October 6th, than to get the info directly from Zozo. According to our friends at the National Center for Safe Routes to School, this idea began in 1997 when the Partnership for a Walkable America sponsored the first Walk Our Children to School Day in Chicago. Since 2002, it has become a worldwide event, with schools here in America in all 50 states leading the way for healthier children. Make sure you get out for Walk to School and walk or ride your bike that day!
