Children need exerciseso let them have it.

Children are among the most vulnerable participants of city trafficThat is why the areas around schools, where they walk most often, should be easy to understand and arranged so that children can walk to school by themselves without causing worry to their parentsWe join forces with schools to seek safer traffic solutions. 

Children deserve that we listen to their wishes. 

We facilitate communication between children, parents, and the school on the one hand, and the authorities on the otherWe help children to get actively involved in designing the space they live in. 

Children want to be self-reliantso let’s support them. 

We help schools to form a School Mobility Plan and set up rules that make children happy to walk, cycle or ride the scooter to school. We try to eliminate one of the most widespread reasons why parents drive their children to school – concerns about their safety. 

Our supproters

Díky vaší pomoci vznikl v prosinci v rekordní době nový přechod v ulici Klausova. Přechod je velmi využíván a slyším na něj samé pozitivní ohlasy, hlavně od rodičů malých dětí, které zde mají konečně místo, kde mohou bezpečně přejít na druhou stranu silnice.

Lucie Ondroušová, školní koordinátorka programu Bezpečné cesty do školy na ŽS Klausova

Our supproters

Zapojení naší školy do projektu iniciovali rodiče. Byla to spousta práce, ale díky spolupráci s odborníky na dopravní problematiku a díky podpoře zřizovatele, kterým je Městská část Praha 8, se nám nyní snad začíná blýskat na lepší časy. Proměna ulice před školou v pěší zónu, přátelskou vůči malým i velkým školákům, by byla pro školu výhrou.

How the program works

We respect children’s opinionobtained through a detailed survey, while also analysing the traffic around schools. Based on active cooperation with children, a traffic engineer proposes adjustments to high-risk locations to increase their safetyThe proposals are discussed within a working group of school representativespoliticianspublic servantspolice officers, and other stakeholders involved in the decision-making process.
