As you will know by now, the 2nd World Youth Assembly is taking place next year on the 18th February 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden. We are inviting young leaders from across the world to join us to start #ClaimingOurSpace for safe mobility and at the decision-making table! Whether you will be applying to attend or not, we want to hear from you! What do you have to say about safe mobility in your area?
The Assembly will feature a full-day of programming that brings together young advocates, campaigners, and change-agents who are committed to combating road traffic injuries. The Assembly will explore road safety and crosscutting solutions to challenge the number one cause of death for youth (aged 15-29). It will be action-oriented, intergenerational, and inclusive, with representation of young leaders from all over the world.
These Youth Consultations are a space for young people to come together, reflect discuss their futures. We want to hear your proposed solutions to transform our area into safer and sustainable spaces, considering topics such as health, environment, human rights, equality, poverty and other issues related to road safety and mobility. What issues do you face on the road? What could make your journeys safer? What needs to change?
We are aiming to collect voices incorporating all of the diverse backgrounds, interests and experiences of young people. We also want to hear from the different fields and sectors of development.
The Youth Consultations will gather youth opinions and directly build in to the Stockholm Youth Statement for Road Safety. This statement will gather all of the key points from the Consultations into one Statement and it will then be shared with global decision-makers in road safety during the 3rd Ministerial Conference in Road Safety in Stockholm, Sweden (19-20 February 2020).
Are you a young leader that wants to take action in your country for safer mobility through advocacy and campaigning? Then you can apply to attend the Assembly.
The 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety will take place in Stockholm on the 18th of February 2020, as an official pre-event of the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.
