2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety

23 January 2020

"It's time we shift the paradigm that young people are 'problem road users' to showing that young people can be active change agents and assets for road safety," says Manpreet Darroch, Youth for Road Safety (YOURS), speaking on behalf of the Global Youth Taskforce for Road Safety.

The taskforce, comprising young road safety advocates, is hosting consultations with young people around the world in the lead-up to the 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety to be held on 18th February 2020, on the eve of the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Sweden.

The World Youth Assembly is organized by the task force and will bring together 200 young leaders from different walks of life under the tagline #ClaimingOurSpace to focus on safe mobility and establishing a place for young people at the decision-making table.
