- About EASST
The rate of road fatalities and injuries in Greece is amongst the highest in Western Europe, and has critical implications for the country’s development. As a supporter of the International Make Roads Safe campaign, MRSH therefore aim to raise awareness of the impact that road traffic collisions can have on sustainable development, ensure political commitment and promote road safety in Greece.
Since joining the EASST team in 2015, MRSH have been using the EASST Road Safety Education pack to teach children how to stay safe on the roads. As well as providing information to parents and decision makers on the importance of keeping children safe as both vehicle passengers and pedestrians.
