You know the issues. You've got some ideas. You've come up with a plan. Now it's time to act.
HASTe has a number of tools and programs available to help you take action to reduce emissions. There's the iSchoolTravel online emissions calculator that's fun and easy to use. The Classroom Emissions Tracking Program provides a structure for helping students figure out the impacts of their travel, make a plan on cutting their emissions, and track the progress made by both individuals and a whole class. The Walking School Bus and BicycleTrain programs helps parents and schools to establish active and safe routes to schools. The online Route Planning Tool can be utilized to help establish Best Routes for active school travel. And the Anti-Idling Cookbook offers ideas and tools for conducting an anti-idling program at schools.
The tools and programs you'll find on HASTe are here to support your work. They were developed with input and guidance from school community stake-holders. If you know of an emission-reduction tool or program you think should be made available to students, schools and communities in BC, please let us know.
