Young people under the age of 29 years are the main victims of road traffic crashes worldwide. More young people aged between 15-29 die from road crashes than from HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis, or homicide. This means that road safety is a serious threat to youth no matter where they are.
On Friday 10th May, 2019 from 3pm – 4pm BST (10am - 11am EST), we will team up with youth across the globe to host a Global Youth Twitter Chat using the hashtag - #SpeakUpforRoadSafety
We will be discussing topics via Twitter and you can take part really easily. Just join in during the time with the hashtag above. We invite all activists, youth-participating organizations, nonprofits, and anyone who have a passion for youth and road safety to join us in this conversation. We will be focusing on questions such as what does meaningful youth participation mean to you?
What is a Twitter Chat?
A Twitter chat is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag. This hashtag allows you to follow the discussion and participate in it. Twitter chats are based on specific topics to regularly connect people with these interests. You can join us with the hashtag #SpeakUpforRoadSafety.
The Twitter chat is being run by our North America Regional Champion Jacob Smith on the YOURS Twitter Profile.
If you or your organization is interested in participating, please email us for more information. Email Jacob on firstname.lastname@example.org
