Today, July 7, the Coalition is celebrating the anniversary of its launch! The Global Youth Coalition was initiated by YOURS – Youth for Road Safety and is a direct follow-up after the 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety. The Coalition unites individual youth and organizations for road safety and sustainable mobility and offers opportunities, skills, resources, capacity development, and partnerships for its members so that they maximize their impact on road safety and meaningful youth involvement in their respective countries and communities.
Since its launch last 7 July 2020, the Coalition has gained over 500 members from 96 different countries worldwide. Empowering its members, the Coalition has been featured in multiple local and global events that highlight the role of young people in achieving the targets listed in the Global Goals.
Made possible by our partners, our members are empowered to take action to further road safety and sustainable mobility efforts through meaningful youth involvement.
Since the beginning of its launch, partners of the Coalition have continuously expressed their support for road safety and meaningful youth participation. For the anniversary, partners have reaffirmed their commitment to the Coalition and its leaders.

Through our members and partners, the Coalition has created a strong group of youth leaders who are raising their voices and are joining together to ensure meaningful youth participation in road safety and sustainable mobility and are also taking evidence-based actions to empower youth leaders and reduce road traffic injuries in their communities.
The Coalition is a growing and thriving youth network of strong leaders working to keep youth around the world safe on the world’s roads. Get involved today by joining here.
