The Fundación Gonzalo Rodriguez has, from the beginning, conducted and promoted awareness and education events to get the whole society involved in the issue at hand.
Large-scale information dissemination activities
Large-scale dissemination activities are always conducted within campaigns promoted by the Fundacion or take place on relevant dates such as the Road Safety Week. These activities aim to raise population´s awareness about best practices regarding children transportation, approaching their different types of mobility, promoting the use of Child Restraint Systems in private cars, and the transportation to school in authorized school vehicles with height-adjustable, three-point seat belts. Volunteers are fundamental when it comes to directly disseminating the information; this is all possible thanks to alliances with civil society organizations.
Some of these activities have been:
• Saving Lives on the Road - within the Global Road Safety Week
• Awareness Activity #SaveKidsLives - within the III Road Safety Week
• Check Up Event at Canteras del Parque Rodó – within the context of the National Road Safety Week
• School Mural Painting - within the context of the "Safely Back to School" Campaign, 6th Edition
