More colour on sidewalks in times of COVID!

In uplifting news we want to share a small and beautiful initiative from Ontario, Canada. 

At a time when COVID-19 painted the world grey, project staff and volunteers in the Canadian town Timiskaming came together to paint brightly coloured sidewalk stencils along key walking routes to several local schools. This encouraged kids to enjoy active play on their school commute while play structures are closed due to COVID-19. 

Read more about this smart initiative and about how this well funded, successful program is transforming travel to school across the province.
