YOURS has launched the Youth and Road Safety Action Kit

18 April 2012

In support of the Decade of Action The global youth organisation YOURS has launched a unique tool geared for road safety action; the Youth and Road Safety Action Kit is the first of its kind ever where young people from around the world will have universal and free access to learn about the global road safety crisis facing young people and how to take action!

The kit is available to view, download and use now.

The Youth and Road Safety Action Kit takes young people on a journey with three main stops. The first part focuses on the global road safety crisis: Why are young people at particular risk? How does speeding, distracted driving, alcohol and drug use, non-use of helmets and other risk factors contribute to road traffic injuries? After the first stop, it is time for action. The second part is a guide on how to get on board with a focus on planning and implementing road safety projects. What else do young people need to get going? The last part is a set of briefings on key actions and processes that will can make their projects successful: partnership building,
community participation, networking, and fundraising.

The Kit is available for free to download here and YOURS offers training on the content of the Kit for further development of young people around the world. The Kit has been produced with the support of Michelin, and International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), with the technical support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention.
