Synthesis of the case study

Healthy Environments, Healthy Children is a collaborative project of the Heart Foundation and the Western Australian Council of State School Organisations (WACSSO). This guide is linked to the "Tracks2school" program - a collaborative project between the Department of Transport, Physical Activity Taskforce and Heart Foundation. It is a guide to advocate for walking and cycling, and how to overcome other health issues. This is achieved through assisting parent groups to influence their school communities and making positive changes to the environment, making it easier for children to lead healthy, more active lives. The document includes easy-to-use templates, case studies, and links to existing programs and services.
