The Sopot-based My Space Love Story Foundation, together with its strategic partner LOTOS GROUP, is pleased to continue educating children about road safety. Driven by positive feedback from previous collaborations, they organised a new edition of the Lotos Safety Academy for Children in May and June 2022. The goal of the Lotos Safety Academy for Children is to develop and expand road safety knowledge through various games and activities. The May-June edition of the event was attended by 10 schools from the Pomeranian Voivodeship, from the towns of: Sopot, Gdynia, Szemud, Kosakowo, Pelplin, Wicko, Kolbudy, and Rumia. The courses gathered about 400 children aged 7-14. The academy consisted of two parts – theoretical and practical, which culminated in a cycling license exam. During the first part, an instructor taught about traffic rules – children learnt about road signs, various types of intersections, and road behaviour. We also had some special guests: a paramedic and a firefighter, who discussed with the participants the principles of first aid - how to behave when they see an accident. They demonstrated how to properly apply a bandage, how to perform CPR by practicing on a CPR doll, and what to do when an infant starts choking. All of this was demonstrated through exercises with children. Then the participants moved on to the practical part in the Bicycle Town. Children rode their bicycles according to traffic regulations on a square with roads and intersections drawn and mini-road signs set up. It was a kind of test of both theory and practice, and a positive completion resulted in the issuing of a cycling license. On top of that, the participants received diplomas and various items - reflectors, bags, T-shirts - sponsored by the Lotus Group and the My Space Love Story Foundation.
