The crucial role of education in sustainable mobility and road safety

Training and awareness about sustainable mobility and road safety are fundamental aspects to promote a change in the way we move in our cities and school environments.

By offering workshops and educational campaigns aimed at students, teachers, families and the community in general, the development of more sustainable and safe transport habits is encouraged.

Firstly, educational workshops and campaigns can help students understand the importance of sustainable mobility and road safety.

Through practical and dynamic activities, boys and girls learn about the benefits of using sustainable means of transport, such as cycling or walking, and how to do it safely. In addition, they are taught to respect and follow traffic rules, which contributes to a safer environment for everyone.

Secondly, training and awareness-raising aimed at teachers and educational center staff is essential to ensure that sustainable mobility and road safety are promoted within the school environment.

Educators can integrate these topics into the curriculum and also act as role models in adopting safe and sustainable transportation practices.

Families also play a key role in this process. By involving parents in workshops and educational campaigns, they are provided with information and tools to support and encourage their children to adopt sustainable and safe transport habits.

This may include promoting cycling, walking, public transport or car sharing to reduce congestion and pollution in areas near schools.

Finally, involving the community at large in training and raising awareness about sustainable mobility and road safety is essential to create a healthier and safer environment in which to live and learn. The community can participate in awareness campaigns, driver education activities and events that promote sustainable mobility.
