- Public invitation of stories and ideas to aid the selection of elementary schools that would receive the transparent umbrellas needed for children’s safety when outside - Application from April 4 to 13 via the website of either MOBIS, the Korea Transportation Safety Authority, or the Korea Children Safety Foundation
MOBIS has announced that, from April 4 to 13, it is inviting stories and ideas from the public about raising awareness of traffic safety for children in order to select elementary schools which would join its project concerning ‘the distribution of transparent umbrellas for children’s traffic safety’.
MOBIS has provided elementary school children all over the country with the transparent umbrellas it produces with the aim of preventing the needless traffic accidents involving children on rainy days. Until last year, the elementary schools located near MOBIS’s business sites were the recipients of the umbrellas. However, MOBIS plans to heighten the level of public awareness about children’s road safety by donating umbrellas to more schools and holding a public contest about related ideas and stories this year.
Anyone interested in children’s safety on roads may apply via the website of either MOBIS, the Korea Transportation Safety Authority, or the Korea Children Safety Foundation.
As part of the contest, the name of the elementary school that needs transparent umbrellas, stories about why it applies, and any novel ideas about traffic safety for children will be warmly welcomed. Selected elementary schools will receive, for all its students, transparent umbrellas and notes about safety regulations for children.
‘The distribution of transparent umbrellas for children’s traffic safety’ under the slogan ‘Kids First’ is a prime social contribution activity that MOBIS first started in 2010 to protect from traffic accidents children, who are our hope for the future and the next generation, while also being able to fulfill its corporate social responsibility as a leading auto parts company.
