Students from Shengdeng and Kunchi Middle Schools in Nanba Township, China presented their photos of road hazards and unsafe pedestrian behaviors in the community as well as their suggestions for improving walking environments to the government representatives in attendance. The presentation is the culmination of the Photovoice project carried out by our Walk Wise program over the past two months, which utilized photos and reflections from students as a way to educate them on pedestrian safety and advocate for better walking environments. More than 200 parents and 800 students from Nanba Kunchi Vocational School attended the event, including ten representatives from the Chinese government and local police.
Since March, the Photovoice project has reached a total of 12,654 direct beneficiaries, including 6,193 students from two primary schools and two secondary schools, and 8,869 indirect beneficiaries in Nanba County.
