This project, sponsored by the London Borough of Croydon, evaluated the Walk on Wednesday program, which encourages primary school students to walk to school at least once a week. It was assessed from the perspectives of school and Council staff, parents, and students using interviews, surveys, workshops, and observations. We found that Walk on Wednesday would be beneficial to Croydon, provided the Council refocuses the implementation process, increases parental involvement, and focuses primarily on schools with a strong staff advocate.
