HomeNewsYEARS ? Young Europeans Acting for Road Safety
Wednesday 12th September 2018 09:00-13:30 Brussels, Thon EU Hotel
The European Transport Safety Council is delighted to invite you to the final YEARS Conference in Brussels on the 12th of September. This conference is the culmination of the YEARS project (Young Europeans Acting for Road Safety), an EU co-funded outreach project jointly managed by the ETSC and the Parliamentary Advisory Council on Transport Safety (PACTS) with the support of the European Commission, the German Road Safety Council (DVR) and VIAS Institute.
Eight engineering students from Italy (Giuseppe Silvestro and Vincenzo Viro, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering of the University of Naples Federico II), Poland and Lithuania are the winners of this European-wide competition to inspire young people to develop and implement infrastructure safety improvements in their local areas. The best projects will be awarded during the event.
YEARS looks at the current situation in EU Member States and the latest data on road deaths involving young people, the main risks they face and what can be done to address these, in order to raise awareness among stakeholders and spur on national administrations to take action and reduce the number of young people killed on the roads.
The agenda of the conference will be soon available on the ETSC website.
