Since 2000 Renault Portugal has been rolling out the educational programme The Road and Me for children aged 7 to 11.
In Portugal, the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety is led by the Ministry of Health. As a result, this ministry became interested in the programme "The Road and Me" which it validated and endorsed by putting the logo of the Portuguese government on the educational kits. Since the list of schools is provided by the Ministry of Education, schools participating in the programme formally register this training with the curriculum vitae of the students.
In nearly 20 years, 750,000 children have been made aware of Road Safety through the programme The Road and Me. Each year 4,000 kits are printed and sent to schools but there is also the possibility to download them on the website www.segurancaparatodos.com .
