Yesterday (Tuesday 7th July), was a momentous occasion for us as we launched the Global Youth Coalition for Road Safety. In a special online launch, hundreds of young people, partners and supporters joined us for a special Facebook Live ceremony. We heard from the Youth Advisory Board, an introduction to the Coalition, messages of support from dignitaries and the official moment of launching the Coalition and its new website.
The Global Youth Coalition for Road Safety unites individual youth and organizations. We are passionate young people from across the world taking action on safe mobility issues. We are championing meaningful youth participation in road safety and beyond.
The Coalition offers young leaders resources, skills, partnerships and opportunities to take their ideas to the next level and maximize their impact. It believes that global and local action is needed to make the world’s roads safer for everyone. The Coalition connects to key related topics such as health, sustainable cities, climate change, education, poverty and equality.
