Experiences of the City of Bolzano regarding the initiatives that have been introduced to make the way to school safer for primary school children will be presented in the webinar:

the Crossing guards who help children at pedestrian crossings to cross safely, the Pedibus initiative and the temporary closure of some streets near schools, the so-called "school streets".

These initiatives reduce significantly the number of private car journeys, in favor of active and independent mobility for children. This promotes their health and the development of important personal and social skills.

The different initiatives, their planning and implementation will be described. The positive experiences and criticisms made over the years will also be explained in detail.
