 Youth and Road Safety Action Kit
“Young people have the most to gain from improvements to road safety, asit is their lives which are most at risk on the world’s roads. They also havean enormous potential to make important contributions as advocates andimplementers of road safety initiatives. WHO is pleased to support YOURS - Youth for Road Safety in its work with youth from around the world,including its efforts to build their capacities for advocacy.”

“I participated in YOURS’ road safety workshop at the Muscat Youth Summit andlearned so much from it. I didn’t realise that road safety was such a big issue inthe world with over 1000 young people dying every day! After the workshop,I spread the message with my friends and family and I know that this Action Kitwill give young people like me the knowledge we need to be safe on the roads.”
