SR4S Global Programme Partner 3M brings visibility to an issue that is too often left in the dark. The company launched the Project School Zone Safety, a company initiative aimed to raise global awareness of the road dangers children face travelling to and from school. From this year to 2024, 3M aims to amplify its commitment to keeping roads safe with its school zone transformations. Starting with 100 schools around the world, Project School Zone Safety is implementing science-driven innovations to make road improvements to help protect the lives of children.
“3M’s commitment to improve school zone safety centers on the belief that every child deserves a chance at an education and getting to school safely shouldn’t be a barrier,” said Dr. Dan Chen, President of 3M Transportation Safety Division.
“Over the next two years, we will work with NGOs and government agencies to improve safety in school zones and develop a scalable model for high-risk and under-resourced communities to create safer roads for all children.”
