Youth and Road Safety Action Kit

Our Action Kit is the backbone of the work we do to empower young people in road safety. All around the world, youth who have been affected by road traffic crashes or want to take real action have picked up the Action Kit as an effective starting point. Our groundbreaking workshops were built from the concepts in the Action Kit and is given out to every youth that experiences a workshop.

There are hundreds of reports out there that offer an insight into road safety, many of them 1000 pages long and scattered over different risk factors, regions and themes. For a young person wanting to learn about road safety, tackling all these reports would be a daunting task! That's why we have done it for them. We condensed reams of information into easy, bitesized and youth-friendly chunks to make it easy for young people to grasp the global road safety crisis facing young people, why youth are at particular risk, the key risk factors and how they can get started.

The Action Kit has been written by and for young people, reviewed by experts and endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

"The youth of the world call for action"

Explore our rich history of youth declarations for road safety.

 

 

Youth Declarations for Road Safety

In 2007, the first ever global gathering of young leaders took place at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. Here over 400 young people from 100 countries adopted the first World Youth Declaration for Road Safety calling on leaders to take road safety action for youth. Young people themselves also pledged to take action. A road safety movement was created and here, our organization YOURS, was born. Since then we have supported young people around the world to localize the road safety issue and call for action with regional declarations.
