YOURS 2020 Report

5 August 2021

In his introduction to the  2020 Report Floor Lieshout, Executive Director YOURS stresses: 'Many will remember 2020 as the year when humanity faced the COVID-19 pandemic. The coronavirus had a massive impact on all of us. On how we work, learn and meet. It also had a large influence on how we travelled, we realized, as never before that liveable streets are more crucial than ever as we respond to COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic is demonstrating the urgency of sharing roads more equitably, encouraging walking and cycling, and keeping young people safe on their journeys.'

It also highlights that in 2020 some 200 youth leaders from more than 70 countries made history at the 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety in Sweden. At this event the Global Youth Statement for Road Safety was adopted, after a large youth consultation with more than 1500 young people around the world. This led to the successful launch of the Global Youth Coalition for Road Safety in July 2020.
