This summer, we launched a series of community road safety outreach events beginning in mid-July as part of our Walk Wise program in China. By the end of August, we held four events in five communities in Nanba Town and the greater Xuanhan County in Sichuan Province.

The safety director of Nanba, Mr. Yang, and Nanba police officers facilitated the community events which started with speeches from the representatives of local government that focused on the importance of road safety in daily activities. Following the speeches, we gave an introduction of the Walk Wise project in Nanba which highlighted the structure and importance of project activities during the last school year.

At the events, two students from Kunchi Middle School shared their photo voice projects from the spring semester which depicted their perspectives of traffic situations and road environments near their homes and schools. Additionally, road safety education videos were screened and attendees played trivia games relating to road safety.

This fall, we will organize two more events during the semester to engage additional communities of the Walk Wise program.
