YOURS National Champions

Currently YOURS has national focal points in a range of countries.

About the National Champions

This is a group of young people who are passionate about road safety from the comprehensive realm covering injuries, disabilities, violence and its related burden and relationship with other public health challenges not limited to climate change, sustainable development.

With such a significant portion of the population being affected, the Road Safety Youth Champions initiative aims to be a key force in raising awareness of road safety and advocating for the needs of young people. As a part of the greater YOURS network, this initiative recognizes the invisibility of road safety youth champions from community level, district level, regional level, and country level, and also recognizes the need to raise awareness of this global problem, in order to advocate for the growth of supports and services for young people. 

Objectives:

  • To deepen young people’s involvement in the road safety agenda, including asking for immediate action to reach the road safety target set in the Global Goals in their respective countries and globally;
  • To enable young people to take extensive action to advocate for the current and future of road safety for young people;
  • To inspire and connect young people in the regions and represent their interests.


Our National Champions include young people we have trained through the YOURS Youth Empowerment Programme.

"Let us acknowledge and celebrate what youth can do to build a safer, more just world. Let us strengthen our efforts to include young people in policies, programmes and decision-making processes that benefit their futures and ours."

Ban Ki Moon - Former Secretary General, United Nations
