Our Action Kit is the backbone of the work we do to empower young people in road safety. All around the world, youth who have been affected by road traffic crashes or want to take real action have picked up the Action Kit as an effective starting point. Our groundbreaking workshops were built from the concepts in the Action Kit and is given out to every youth that experiences a workshop.
There are hundreds of reports out there that offer an insight into road safety, many of them 1000 pages long and scattered over different risk factors, regions and themes. For a young person wanting to learn about road safety, tackling all these reports would be a daunting task! That's why we have done it for them. We condensed reams of information into easy, bitesized and youth-friendly chunks to make it easy for young people to grasp the global road safety crisis facing young people, why youth are at particular risk, the key risk factors and how they can get started.
Posters can be an effective awareness raising tool and used in the proper setting, can be the extra nudge to encourage a young person to be safe on the road. These posters are "surreal", taking road safety contexts and placing them in unusual and thought provoking imagery.
Our poster series focuses on a five key risk factors; seatbelts, helmets, alchohol, visibility and speeding. These posters have been used all across the world, on billboards, in local settings and on T.V and they are available for you to use completely free!
You can also obtain these photos in the highest-resolution to use in bigger events, scenarios or billboards. Did we mention they are absolutely free to use?
Young people are the biggest affected group when it comes to road deaths. Hundreds of thousands of young people agef 15-29 are killed every year and the numbers vary depending on where you live. We have put together an infographic using the latest available data to illustrate the impact road crashes have on young people globally.
While the numbers remain a crucial way to see the global impact of road crashes on youth, we remember that every single young people killed on the road represents a life full of promise. Many of the lives lost occur in low and middle-income countries where many young people provide an income to their households; pluging families further into poverty.
