OKI Europe in Germany has partnered with the German broadcaster WDR for a special project to provide free visual aids for children based on a popular cartoon series to help them follow social distancing measures effectively.
Schools, day care centres, paediatric practices, zoos, amusement parks and toy shops in Germany can take advantage of the offer of floor stickers designed with the look and feel of the children’s cartoon series ‘Die Sendung mit der Maus1’ (The Show with the Mouse). The initiative is helping to support educational establishments as they reopen following the easing of measures put in place to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campaign is proving to be popular with educational establishments across Germany with 5,000 requests for the stickers received by OKI Europe Germany in just two days (maximum 20 stickers per order).
This approach forms part of a wider social distancing campaign OKI Europe is running to assist organisations to reopen quickly and safely.
“High impact visual communications are critical for encouraging social distancing. Even as the strict controls have been lifted, social distancing is likely to remain a requirement for some weeks, potentially months to come, so organisations need measures in place as a reminder to keep a safe distance,” said Javier Lopez, General Manager, Vertical Solutions, OKI Europe Ltd. “Providing free media will help minimise the time it takes to print and implement essential social distancing signage and support businesses and organisations, including educational establishments, to become operational again safely.”
