Lotta Cederfeldt

Since the 1990’s, the Streets and Parks Department in Malmö has been supporting local schools with their road safety education. The site http://www.malmo.se/trafiksakraskolan (Road Safety School) offers activities, courses and competitions. The Department has also developed materials for all grades from pre-school through to high school. The materials are continuously updated. Schools can also borrow other materials and/or participate in activities that can be implemented into theme days. Teacher's guidance at staff meetings is also offered.Among other things, reflectors are distributed to all children in the first four grades. There are also school projects which inspire children to walk or cycle to school by cooperating with the schools. Additionally we are providing information to parents and organizing fun activities for the children. A survey conducted by the Streets and Parks Department, shows that teachers work with road safety education in various ways. They are pleased with both the initiatives from the Street and Parks Departments and also the provided materials. They see it as an educational tool and find it useful even though it is not used in the same way. Teachers know that students like the materials and the received feedback from parents is positive.
