Global Child & Youth Road Safety
Thursday, October 21 | 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The Global Child and Youth Road Safety session will highlight the template developed and completed by SIG members to collect relevant information about the infrastructure in their countries or states specifically dedicated to children at risk on roads, in cars, on motor bikes, as drivers, and as pedestrians. A redcap survey highlighting template questions will be shared with the full AAAM membership prior to the conference. Even the most developed countries have deficits and some low- or middle- income countries have strengths that open the doors for collaboration and growth.
Road Safety in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Friday, October 22 |12 p.m. – 1:25 p.m.
The Road Safety in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) session will start with a presentation from Youth for Road Safety’s (YOURS) Executive Director, focusing on what they do to make roads safer for youth, and the promotion of youth empowerment. This will be followed by three presentations from Youth Leaders in LMIC who will provide grassroot examples of road safety initiatives, discussing successes, challenges, and how youth leaders are being change agents for their communities. To cap of the session, we will hold a Q&A session to further discuss the road safety challenges in LMIC, and opportunities for YOURS and AAAM to work together.
