The GUB has been offering the city’s schools sessions on safety and positive community life since 1985.
The educational programme entitled "The GUB at school", which is given for free to all the city’s school centres, helps to provide responses to social problems and improve community life. It is also aimed at preventing risky behaviour through the field of education.
This programme is an educational proposal for working with children and teenagers at every educational stage on aspects to do with:
- Knowledge of, links with and care for our surrounding environment
- Improving community life and inter-personal relations
- Preventing risky behaviour in the fields of driving and safe mobility, gender violence and drug consumption
Each of these thematic areas has several workshops that are adapted to the school curriculum putting special emphasis on the skills that are advisable to achieve at every educational stage, incorporating a wide range of resources. The programme received the Council for Educational Innovation's quality seal in January 2018.
Children's Traffic Park
The Children’s Traffic Park is a free educational space, aimed at the school, leisure and family areas. The activities offered here are mainly for acquiring basic knowledge of main road-safety regulations and developing attitudes relating to safe mobility through a practical activity on the park's circuit. This concerns identifying, analysing and evaluating risky situations and behaviour and fostering respect between the various users of public roads.
The goals to be achieved are:
- Understanding road-safety rules as cyclists and pedestrians.
- Raising awareness of the importance of respecting road-safety rules for mobility in Barcelona, above all those for cycling.
- Adopting safe behaviour, attitudes and habits relating to safe mobility on the city's streets and respect between the various road users.
