Delivered through interesting experiments and interactive games, the lecture covers safety tips for crossing the street, waiting for the school bus, and bicycling.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic accidents were the leading cause of injuries among young people worldwide in 2016. However, most of those injuries could have been prevented, in part by educating young people regarding safety awareness.

Marcelo Fioranelli, Vice President of Air Liquide Greater China, said: "We're pleased to see that this lecture was well-received by all the students. We hope they keep the tips in mind and apply them in their daily lives. In line with our Group's vision of creating value over the long-term, we're seeking to bolster the well-being of the community, contributing to both the social and the economic development of the city."
