This gide focses on how mnicipalities
can utilise structural prevention to make
ccling the healthiest, safest and easiestmode of transport to and from school.The gide is targeted to mnicipalities,making it easier to design health and
biccle-friendl school roads, thus moti-
vating more children and ong people toccle. The pblication explains wh it is im
-portant to work with structural prevention;secondl, it aims to provide an overview of 
this area and inspiration for taking actionto implement effective, cost-efcient so
It is important that municipalities workacross departments to ensure a connection
between their ongoing infrastrctre pro
- jects and the multifaceted interests in he-alth children who are able to travel safel
to and from school. The greatest possiblebenet for citizens is attained b incor
porating the wide range of interests intothese efforts.
Until now, the primar focus has been onhow various infrastructural improvementsreduce the number of accidents, which is
also reected in this manal. In the ftre,
it will be just as important to focus on howman more people we can inspire to ccle
to and from school b creating intelligentsoltions.The backgrond for this pblication is the
Danish National Board of Health’s 2012
“Get Moving” campaign, held from week16 to 18 both nationall and locall. Thelocal campaign efforts are condcted
for the Danish National Board of Health
throgh partnerships, inclding with theDanish Cancer Societ.“Get Moving” highlights the Danish Na
-tional Board of Health’s recommendation
that children and ong people shold be
phsicall active for at least 60 minutes
a da. The activit mst be moderate tohigh intensit. If it is divided p into smal
-ler increments, each must be continuousfor at least 10 minutes, which means that
the phsical activit mst exceed ordinar
short-term activities, as these rarel last for
more than 10 consective mintes. Activetransport that exceeds 10 mintes, sch asccling to school, conts towards these 60mintes.So we’re setting the wheels in motion.Happ reading!
