Who am I?: Jacky Kennedy is Programme Manager for Green Communities - Active and Safe Routes to School in Canada
Jacky initiated this successful program in Toronto in 1996 and it grew from three pilot schools to over 1,500 schools Ontario-wide by the fall of 2006. She is recognized internationally as a leader in her field and is often called upon to assist with the development of ASRTS programs in other areas. She sits on the international committee for IWALK.
