In 2015, we won the award recognized by Fundacion MAPFRE: YOURS (Youth for Road Safety) for the project Youth Capacity Development Programme. A road safety program addressed to young people, started in 2011. The program aims to train young people in the prevention of road accidents, inspire them and motivate them to become proactive and involved in the prevention of accidents, and to develop skills to put their own initiatives into practice.
