Welcome to the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport
Making road travel safer, greener and more sustainable for future generations.
This year, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken our All-EASST Partners meeting online. Last month we all met up on Zoom to catch up, reflect, discuss how the pandemic is impacting road safety, and how we can use our work to help countries build back better.
With the support of a grant by FedEx Express Europe, we have been working with the Belarusian Auto Moto Touring Club and local disability groups to turn old high visibility PPE into ‘mascots’ or tags for school book bags and children’s coats to promote visibility and safety on the roads.
Last month the Lviv University of Life Safety marked the official opening of their new Rescue Training Centre with a demonstration of road crash rescue for the President of Ukraine featuring FIRE AID’s transformer car.
EASST launches new resources for school bus safety and UNICEF and the Child Health Initiative publishes guidance to support safe and healthy journeys to school during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Our newest EASST partner, Urban Forum Kazakhstan, have been working with young people in the East Kazakhstan city of Ust-Kamenogorsk (Oskemen) to create safer routes to school.
The National Automobile Club of Azerbaijan and the World Bank launch new research project to investigate the socio-economic cost of road crashes in Azerbaijan.
City authorities in Yerevan, Armenia have passed a new law lowering urban speed limits by 10km/h. This will serve as a pilot, with a view to reducing speed limits across the whole country.
Our latest blog discusses the need to build back better when it comes to sustainable tourism and how this links to road safety, active mobility and clean transport.
What we do
Our road safety projects focus on seven priority areas to develop sustainable transport systems and make roads safe across the region.
Where we work
The courses are available for you to access whenever you like, wherever you are. It’s also more affordable than similar traditional classroom style training and you can learn at a time and a pace that suits you.
The EASST Road Safety Education Pack is a global teaching resource that provides stimulating and engaging activities to introduce road safety messages and behaviours to kids.
It can be tailored to local contexts, incorporating the logos of local organisations and NGOs, changing the idiom, names and illustrations as necessary. While the fundamental content and key messages remain the same.
The Education Pack is currently available in eleven languages.
