Abstract

The traffic around the schools is one of the worst events for sustainability. The effects are heavy for pollution, for safety deriving from multiplied walk-car cross, for autonomy reduced for student. This paper discusses on Green and Safety School program that realizes Limited Traffic Zones (LTZ) around the schools. Calabria Region has made political and technical decisions oriented towards sustainable development, according to international, European and national targets: by Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), the Region has implemented several ways for realization of the planned measures relative to the urban centres defined by Action 2 Urban areas; by School Plan and program the Region has invested to reduce the vulnerability of school building. The aim of Green and Safety School program is offering a new and never developed field for social, economic and environmental sustainability in urban areas and to propose a strategy for traffic control near schools from basic considerations regarding a problem common of all cities around the world. This program derives from the results obtained with two different previously implemented programs: one relative to the rebuild of school who reduce risk (Scuola Sicura) and another one to the City logistics (leaving from RTP). From an advanced synthesis of these 2 programs born the very new use of LTZ. Green and Safety School is oriented to guarantee green areas and to reduce risk outside school. Even if the program leaves before COVID-19, it assumes significant importance to guarantee social distancing.
