As consultations on the post-2015 development agenda move forward, it is now important to amplify young people’s voices and advocate for road safety. Reducing road traffic injuries must be a priority which should be reflected as concrete commitment in the post-2015 agenda.
On 18 February 2014, the President of the General Assembly launched a Global Partnership on Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda facilitated by the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth to bring together a wide spectrum of stakeholders to be a unified voice for youth priorities in the post-2015 development agenda. The Partnership will aim to create an inclusive platform for young people to formulate concrete ideas that can be proposed for the inter-governmental deliberation.
YOURS signed up for the Global Partnership on Youth and is advocating for road safety. But we need your help! We encourage all youth advocates for road safety to let your voices be heard and vote, tweet, comment on the road safety idea!
As a first step, the crowdsourcing platform was launched to consolidate the outcomes of national, regional, global and online consultations into concrete proposals for the post-2015 development framework. These proposals will be informed by the latest available data and reports, including those from the United Nations and the High Level Panel on Post-2015.
