GCC has been a leading organization promoting active and sustainable school travel for over two decades. We do this through research, advocacy, training, educational resources, events, partnerships, and on-the-ground programming. We have a simple but compelling goal for school travel: to make walking, cycling, and other forms of active, safe, and sustainable transportation the norm for trips to and from school.
