About our work
YOURS is a global organization that acts to make the world’s roads safe for and with youth. Road crashes are the leading killer of young people. Everyday 1000 youth aged 15-29 are dying on the world’s roads and youth are saying enough is enough. 

We are experts in youth and road safety issues and advocate for sustainable mobility at the highest levels of decision-making. We believe in meaningful youth participation as a key strategy to change these statistics. With strategic global advocacy and empowering youth locally, we will unlock a global revolution for road safety and make this generation the last one facing this massive public health threat.

We are a small team with big ideas and powerful allies. We are proud of our work and have loads of fun while doing it.
