Welcome to the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport
Making road travel safer, greener and more sustainable for future generations.
This World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, which was held on Sunday 15th November, we took the time to acknowledge the crucial work of the emergency services.
Last year we received charitable funding from FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), to deliver three diverse initiatives via our NGO partners in Ukraine, Belarus and Azerbaijan.
EBRD has developed a “first of its kind” online road safety engineering e-learning course for road engineers, planners and designers to give them a robust introduction to the fundamental principles of good road safety engineering and auditing based on a Safe System Approach.
Last month, we launched the second phase of our project to make roads safer in the Western Kazakhstan Region with the support of Shell Kazakhstan and Eni.
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.
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.
