European Traffic Education Seminar
To sufficiently equip young road users to become safe road users, education remains of chief importance. This is especially true for secondary school pupils (aged 12 – 18) as they start to travel independently and have to deal with more complex traffic situations.
The seminar will consist of two distinct parts.
The morning session (10:00-13:00 CEST) will focus on linking education on sustainable mobility with traffic safety, two topics that often go hand-in-hand. In particular, there will be presentations on educational projects that not only teach safe cycling or walking, but that also encourages the use of active and sustainable modes of transport, as well as projects that encourage safe and sustainable transport to and around schools. A report on this topic as well as a report on the road safety situation of children and youngster in Europe will be presented during the seminar’s morning session.
The afternoon session (14:00-16:00 CEST) will feature presentations on the latest traffic education projects from across Europe.
