Telethon Kids Institute: Trek2School
A collaborative iMOVE project between Telethon Kids Institute and PATREC was recently announced as one of four winners in iMOVE’s video competition awards. The Trek2School video covers the TRavel, Environment and Kids (TREK) Study: 15 years on project. Participants on the project are the Department of Transport (WA), University of Western Australia, and the Telethon Kids Institute.
This project aims to update and expand the TRavel, Environment and Kids study (TREK) conducted in Perth in 2005. It will investigate school walkability, parent- and student-reported individual, social and environmental factors influencing school transport modes, and latent demand for walking and cycling to school.
