Dhanmodi Kochikantha High School students raise voice to ensure active & safe route to school

Unplanned and rapid urbanization is having a very negative impact on the environment and health. The risk of non-communicable diseases among urban dwellers is increasing at an alarming rate. Children are at greater risk especially in the city due to lack of field-park-public premises and lack of adequate physical activity. Between the ages of 11 and 17, about 80 percent of the world's children are not physically fit. It is possible to meet the physical needs of the students by walking to school. As well as reducing the use of mechanical vehicles by increasing the number of trips on foot, air pollution and noise pollution will be significantly reduced. In addition to reducing the number of non-communicable diseases caused by pollution, it is also possible to prevent climate disasters. Despite the lack of safe and comfortable environment for walking, about 95% of the students of Dhanmondi Kachikantha High School travel to school on foot. All the residents of the area will benefit if the concerned authorities including the city corporation ensure a safe and comfortable environment for walking to school. This was stated by the speakers at the awareness program titled "We want safe environment for walking in area based schools to reduce non-communicable diseases" in front of Kachikantha High School on Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 11:30 AM.
