WOW - the walk to school challenge
WOW is a pupil-led initiative, where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk, cycle, scoot or 'park and stride') at least once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!
There are 11 badges to collect across the 2021/22 academic year, each one thoughtfully designed by a primary school-aged winning entrant to our annual WOW badge design competition.
Your school’s unique requirements can be easily calculated below, simply enter the number of pupils and average walking rate. If you’re unsure of the latter, we suggest setting to 65% and ordering additional badges when required. Your order will include a WOW Travel Tracker subscription and guidance on getting started.
Following school closures in 2020/21, we will start the new year with a celebration of our final two Wonders of the World; the Colosseum in September, followed by the Petronas Towers in October.
From November, Walk for the World badges will focus on the sustainability benefits of walking, highlighting how local actions can have positive global impacts. As we look ahead to COP26, we hope this WOW theme will help pupils understand how walking to school, instead of being driven, is helping to fight climate change through lower vehicle emissions, protecting wildlife and natural habitats for the future.
All of our WOW badges are made domestically from recycled plastic material, including old fridge trays, plastic plates and even yoghurt pot off-cuts, which were otherwise destined for landfill.
