Encouraging active mobility / mobility douce in local schools

Early in 2020, as a member of the Parents Teacher Association Committee of the local schools, I worked with two town councillers to study the mobility habits of the 700+ children of the local schools. Results showed that 87% of kids come to school in Chêne Bourg by foot, on bike or on scooter.

BUT the parents of the 11% who come in cars create danger for all the other through dangerous maneuvers and illegal parking.

I campaigned the Council to improve safety for kids coming by foot, bikes and scooters. The Council are now closing the car park to parents so this space becomes primarily a zone for pedestrians and cyclists. I hope one day, this ‘closed parking’ will become a playground or green space.
