Addressing road safety issues
Through Local Actions, the Coalition is inviting youth leaders to develop and implement original, impactful, and innovative projects to address the urgent needs and commitments outlined in the Global Youth Statement for Road Safety and the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030.

The Coalition is supporting projects that prioritize community mobilization and awareness, advocacy, and peer-to-peer engagement. These priorities focus on engaging and empowering young people and other stakeholders to take action for road safety and sustainability, ensuring the continuity of the projects.

The Global Youth Statement highlights the reality young people face when it comes to road safety. Based on the voices and experiences of over 1,500 youth leaders from 75 countries, the Youth Statement identifies key issues in different regions as well as the commitments young people have made in order to address the issues identified.

The Youth Statement supports the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 which guides and outlines the role of different stakeholders in achieving the targets listed in the New Decade of Action for Road Safety.

Implementing the project
The Local Action project must be created, led, and conceived by young leaders. Following the guidelines, the applicants need to have conducted a Youth Consultation so that the issue that they plan to address reflects the needs of young people in the area.

Winners of the project will receive support from the Coalition in the form of seed funding, project plans, mentorship, and more. The winners and their teams will be guided throughout the 12-month implementation. The previous call for proposals saw twelve projects funded.

Get the chance to lead your own project by sending us a proposal! The call is exclusive to official members of the Global Youth Coalition, so make sure you join! Head to our website for more details!
