Summary of the project
Through this project, the Massa Marmocchi Association intends to make its contribution to support and increase bicycle journeys home-primary schools and back. School mobility is a key issue, especially in this particular moment, and it is demonstrated that the use of bicycles not only contributes to reduce private vehicular traffic and the related pollution, to contain the overcrowding of public transport and to increase safety in the areas in front of the schools with important benefits on the health of children, but thanks to its characteristics naturally guarantees the physical distancing of children along the home-school journey. The project is aimed at developing an innovative path, based on listening to and participating in local stakeholders (families with children enrolled in primary schools, parents associations / committees, teachers and school managers), which will give the possibility to increase the effectiveness of the Massa Marmocchi initiative (in terms of responsiveness to the needs of the beneficiaries) and allow its wider diffusion in the Milan area. This proposal stems from the desire to increase the sustainability and dissemination of the Massa Marmocchi action throughout the territory through the participatory creation of an ad hoc tool: the Massa Marmocchi Toolkit, which will aim to support and spread – through a specific path and additional materials for parents, schools and volunteers – the Massa Marmocchi’s initiative.
- Pupils and families of the 4 participating schools (tot. pupils about 1900); managers and teachers of the participating schools; potentially all the parents and pupils of the 220 thousand primary schools
