International Walk to School Month 2013

The Safe Kids Philippines (SKP) announces the celebration of the International Walk to School Month on November 22, 2013. The theme Stop for Pedestrians is the continuing theme for the UN Global Road Safety Week.

The celebration aims to focus on supporting the Decade of Action for Road Safety (DoARS) 2011-2012, a declaration of the United Nations calling countries into action to address road traffic injuries.

Relative to this event, the SKP and FedEx Express will launch the Walk This Way (WTW), the pedestrian safety program on November 22, 2013 in Angeles City. It aims to teach the school children to be safe while walking along the roads and to improve the walking environments around the schools.

The Safe Kids/FedEx Young Road Safety Champion Program, the "peer to peer” approach on safety education under the banner of WTW will also be launched.

The public elementary and high schools are encouraged to join in the celebration.

The following are suggested activities for the celebration:
