We are inviting young leaders from across the world to join us to start #ClaimingOurSpace for safe mobility and at the decision-making table!
The 2nd World Youth Assembly for Road Safety will take place in Stockholm on the 18th of February 2020, as an official pre-event of the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.
The Assembly will feature a full-day of programming that brings together young advocates, campaigners, and change-agents who are committed to combating road traffic injuries. The Assembly will explore road safety and crosscutting solutions to challenge the number one cause of death for youth (aged 15-29). It will be action oriented, intergenerational, and inclusive, with representation of young leaders from all over the world.

YOUR VOICE WILL BE ADDED TO THE GLOBAL YOUTH STATEMENT ON ROAD SAFETY DELIVERED TO DECISION-MAKERS.
Road crashes are A GLOBAL CRISIS THAT NEED
ACTION RIGHT NOW
Young people matter. Today's generation of young people is the largest ever in our history. Over 3 billion people – nearly half of the world's population – are under the age of 25. Of these children and young people, more than 1000 die every day on the world’s roads. Tens of thousands more are injured.
Road traffic injuries have been the leading killer of young people worldwide for over a decade, so why are youth so often not included in preventing these tragedies?
Young people have a right to be adequately informed, consulted and empowered to contribute to preventing road traffic injuries.
