History of Active School Travel in Facilitator: please build this slide to outline the AST events that have happened in the community you are presenting to. It would be ideal to model it after slide 3, adding photos of any previous events including IWALK participation, Walking programs, WSBs, and so on. When you speak to each photo, be sure to mention who was involved and the number of schools or children it reached. If you cannot add photos, use bullet points to do the same.
