The formula for success in tackling road safety
EASST is an independent UK-registered charity working in Eastern Europe and South Caucasus to facilitate cross-border projects on sustainable transport and road safety. We work through local partner organisations to make their efforts more effective by sharing know-how and resources. We cooperate in regional and cross-border projects, leveraging support and expertise from around the world to save lives and prevent injuries on the roads.
Our Patron is the Rt Hon Lord Robertson of Port Ellen KT, GCMG, PC, Chairman of the Commission for Global Road Safety and our Chairman is Lord Dubs of Battersea , Chair of the APPGs on EU Enlargement and Moldova.More
Roads are all about communication. Successful road safety policies require a concerted effort across national and regional boundaries and between the EU and its neighbours. EASST works to promote cross-border dialogue and build projects which facilitate cooperation and understanding. Many of the charity’s target countries have frozen conflicts within their boundaries. Our projects – which also span these conflict areas - could be a powerful vehicle for conflict reduction and a vehicle for international cooperation.More
EASST developed from collaboration between successful road safety organisations in Armenia, Georgia and Moldova. We have grown to include campaigners in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Ukraine.
We work together to make local campaigns more effective by sharing know-how and resources. We cooperate in regional and cross-border projects, leveraging support and expertise from around the world.
