Global Newsletter – June 2022 

Dear Friends and Supporters,


Around the world, this is a magical time of the year as many countries enter the warm season of summer, and we see children and adults alike riding their bicycles, walking in the parks enjoying green surroundings. Many millions gather with their families for long-awaited reunions with dear relatives and friends. At the center of all these happy emotions, we find the one thing that makes it all possible - mobility.


Launching our Impact Report 2021, we celebrate accessible mobility and we are proud to share that – beyond road safety – our inclusive and targeted programs pave the way to sustainable changes related to 11 out of 17 SDGs.


As global citizens, we all deserve safe and equal access to education, work, transport, and above all, healthy and green cities and livable neighborhoods around the world. We all have a stake in how mobility works and every action counts. This means that it is up to us to ensure that everyone can access safe and affordable modes of transportation.


In this spirit, at our Heads Up! workshop on stakeholder engagement and advocacy, we brought together our community to encourage everyone to raise their voice for safe and affordable mobility. If you would like to raise YOUR voice, you can enter our helmet safety video competition until July 31st.


Safe mobility and easy commuting to school are at the heart of everyone’s access to education. As part of the growing legacy of the Safety Delivered program in the Philippines, a helmet handover ceremony took place at two project schools with alarmingly low helmet-wearing rates. This promotes community awareness of the life-saving importance of increasing child helmet use and ensures the young students are protected on their way to and from school.


At two other program schools in the Philippines, our team conducted a teacher training on road safety skills. As a result, the teachers are now better equipped with knowledge and skills on helmet safety,  and to pass them on to their primary school students.


The future of mobility lies in the hands of our young generation. To empower them, we must listen to them. In Thailand, we are empowering youth through the opening of the first Road Safety Center for immersive learning for secondary students at the Woranari Chaloem secondary school. The students will use the Road Safety Learning Center as a common area, where they can enjoy participative activities, experiment with road simulations, and test their road safety knowledge together.


In Vietnam, over 17 million children are commuting between home and school 2-4 times per day. To ensure safer mobility and environment for them, a consultation workshop was hosted on the Safe School Zones Vietnam Guide.


Beneficiaries' communities, governmental entities, road safety experts, and stakeholders are all involved and aligned in our common goal to submit the Safe School Zones Vietnam Guide to the Ministry of Transport’s leadership for approval for national application within this year.


As we spend time with family and enjoy the long summer nights,  we can all ask ourselves: what action can I take to contribute to a greener, healthier, and more sustainable mobility?
