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.
Our National Champions include young people we have trained through the YOURS Youth Empowerment Programme.
Under the inspirational leadership of Brian, Regional Champion of Anglophone Africa, this group of talented young people are supporting each other to take road safety to the next level in their country!
In July 2017, we trained a group of passionate young leaders to become Youth Ambassadors for Road Safety. The programme was iniatited by Michelin and GRSP. Read more about the programme here.
