Youth Engagment app integrated into Star Rating for Schools

1 January 0001

In exciting developments, iRAP has integrated results from the YEA (Youth Engagement App), recording road safety perceptions of students travelling to and from school, into Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) assessments to provide a more comprehensive picture of the safety of school zones across Vietnam, and soon the world.

The YEA is an innovative iRAP tool which empowers youth to participate in and inform road safety decision-making, and raise awareness on safer roads. The app collaborates with the SR4S programme, collecting the road safety perceptions of students travelling to and from school.

YEA information is now displayed in the SR4S web app, and can support the identification of locations for infrastructure assessment with SR4S. It is possible to filter them by safety level, and assessors can then create SR4S locations in the areas informed by the students.

The YEA is currently being piloted in 3 cities in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City, Pleiku City, and Yen Bai), where 1,800 students have pinned 15,000 locations noting  their safety perceptions on road safety risk at each location. The results will support the SR4S assessment of 106 priority schools..

The Youth Engagement App was developed as part of the Ai&Me Empower Youth for Safer Roads Project funded by the Fondation Botnar and FIA Foundation. The app has been developed by iRAP with the collaboration of the AIP Foundation.
