Last month we conducted a survey of our EASST partners to get a feel for the impact of COVID-19 in their countries in terms of road safety and mobility. We will use this data to examine what lessons can be learned and how we can respond to the post-COVID ‘new normal’.
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.
