Pursuing its mission to connect as many people as possible with nature, Sépaq aims to be actively involved in promoting healthy habits and raising awareness about physical activity and spending time in nature among young people. Therefore, for a third consecutive year in 2019-2020, Sépaq continued its collaboration with the Education Ministry as a partner of the “À l’école, on bouge!” initiative. This initiative aims to get young people moving on a daily basis and get them to participate in an outdoor outing every school year.
To every school that registers for the À l’école, on bouge! initiative, Sépaq offers:
- Free daily accesses for students, teachers and group attendants
- Free equipment rentals (watercraft, bikes, snowshoes and cross-country skis)
- Free science and educational activities
Last year (2019), more than 743 primary school students participated in this initiative at Québec’s national parks.
