Youth Declaration Moscow adopted by youth leaders

During the Youth Meeting on 18 November 2009, youth leaders from all regions of the world adopted the Youth Declaration Moscow. The following days it was endorsed by many digniteries, for example by the UK Minister of Transport Mr. Paul Clark at the closing session of the Ministerial Conference.

The youth handed over their Youth Declaration Moscow to, among others, the Deputy Director General of the World Health Organization: Dr Anarfi Asamoa-Baah, the Russian Chief of the General Department of the State Road Safety Inspectorate: General Victor Kiryanov, the United States Secretary of Transportation: Ray LaHood (photo) and the Chairman of the Commission for Global Road Safety: Lord Robertson.

The Youth Declaration has 4 recommendations for Ministers: 

  1. Talk about youth and road safety issues, learn about the situation of young people on the roads of your country and bring their issues to the forefront;
  2. Design road safety policies and programs that address youth concerns and engage young people in their planning and implementation;
  3. Invest in young people in your country, build youth capacities, and support local youth road safety initiatives;
  4. Support the mission of YOURS by connecting us to local road safety stakeholders and youth groups, sharing your knowledge and experience, providing technical expertise, and/or providing financial resource.

 

" The deepest definition of youth is life as yet untouched by tragedy. "

Alfred North Whitehead - English mathematician and philosopher (1861 - 1947)
