On the bicycle course at the Carl-von-Ossietzky School in Berlin, the children learn to ride a bicycle correctly – and have lots of fun in the process. The project combines road safety with play, thereby setting a good example in safety education.
As part of the 2014/2015 MobileKids School Days, the German-French elementary school in Sillenbuch, Stuttgart was to become "car-free". This is because many parents brought their children directly to the school gates by car – thereby endangering the other children. A cleverly conceived reward system caused the parents to rethink their behaviour.
True to their adopted motto "Taking responsibility for one another", two classes from the third year of Brander Feld elementary school mentored the first-year children, providing them with help and advice. This interdisciplinary peer-to-peer approach won this year's MobileKids School Days.
MobileKids worldwide: learning the rules of the road is turned into a fun day out at the road safety park in Warsaw.
MobileKids worldwide: children in Romania are being trained to become traffic heroes with interactive lessons, online offers and radio campaigns.
At Mercedes-Benz in Russia, road safety has a high priority too. A festival for families in Sokolniki Park in Moscow featured a 255-square-metre road safety park for children.
MobileKids is now preparing children to be safe cyclists by devoting a separate module to the topic of cycling as part of its educational materials. With knowledge modules, exercises and implementation ideas for schools.
The Mexican campaign ‚Si manejas ¡sólo maneja!‘ teaches road safety the MobileKids way.
Since 2014 MobileKids also supports project and local initiatives in Brazil. Further activities are planned.
