wyaPrior to the High-Level Symposium, a number of pre-events and workshops are taking place. We will be running a workshop on 'Youth and Road Safety' - an insight into evidence-based practices in meaningful youth participation with young people. Our session will also focus on the forthcoming 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety that YOURS is planning prior to the 3rd Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Sweden (February, 2020).

The youth workshop will focus on the following:

  • To raise awareness of the importance of meaningful youth participation in all elements of road safety decision-making and explore the power of youth in road safety;
  • Explore why youth should be involved in the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, Stockholm, Sweden (February 2020), via the 2nd World Youth Assembly (WYA);
  • To raise awareness of the WYA that precedes the Ministerial conference;
  • Work with NGOs to explore how they can be involved in the WYA and the role of civil society.
