EASST Annual Report 2017

by Dec 8, 2017News

In 2017, EASST has achieved so much and we are so proud to be achieving our mission of saving lives and preventing injuries by making road transport safer, greener and more sustainable for future generations.

The activities detailed in the Annual Report cover EASST’s six priority areas for 2017: children’s road safety; occupational road safety management; disability, mobility and road risk; post-crash response; road safety enforcement; and governance and capacity building – and showcase the remarkable achievements of all our EASST partners.

Notable Achievements in 2017:

  • Over 6000 children received Road Safety Education through our Education Pack.
  • Our Fleet Safety Management project in Moldova has been the proud recipient of a 2017 HRH Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
  • Our Georgian partners have launched the world’s first study into the road risk of street children.
  • Nine emergency rescue vehicles and over 180 hours of emergency rescue training have been donated to EASST partner countries to improve post-crash care.
  • With our partners, Kier Group, we won a Silver Green Apple environmental award for our car seat recycling and donations programme in Tajikistan.
  • Welcomed two new partner organisations, the Automobile Club of Albania and LAMB, the Latvian Auto Moto Society.
  • And much more!

Looking to 2018 we hope to expand our work on wider issues of sustainable mobility and fuel economy, in particular promoting accessible and pedestrian-friendly cities.

Our EASST colleague Tatiana Mihailova of the ACM has been collaborating with NACTO, the National Association of City Transport Officials, to learn about ‘city transformations’ – a powerful vehicle for illustrating the benefits of safe and humane road design for municipalities. EASST is also collaborating with the Safer Roads Foundation to improve the most dangerous road crossings in Dushanbe. With their help and support we hope to make a strong, immediate impact on reducing road deaths and injuries in our partner countries.
