The Global Youth Coalition has called for proposals for Local Actions 2023, so as to generate impact in communities and support the demands and commitments of the Global Youth Statement with peers at the grassroots level.
Local action is a short-term or mid-term grassroots action plan oriented to address the most pressing issues in the city or area where you belong. This project must have a tangible contribution to the Global Youth Statement for Road Safety achievement and a clear connection with the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030.
Geeky Nigeria reports that the Youth Coalition For Road Safety is a group of passionate young people from across the world taking action on safer mobility and championing meaningful youth participation in road safety and beyond. We operate from a set of principles that define and guide our work, globally and locally.
For the Local Actions, applicants are to identify the most pressing road safety challenge in their cities and propose a solution that effectively responds to it within one of the following priority areas: community mobilization and awareness, peer-to-peer engagement, advocacy, and infrastructure change.
The Coalition will select the most innovative proposals and award the winners with a seed fund of 5,000 euros and mentorship and will support them in developing a detailed project plan.
