Education online
Learning via Internet
Using the internet for all kinds of activities has become normal - especially, but not only, for younger people. So using the net for educational purposes is a good way to reach employees, young workers, students, pupils, apprentices and children.

This list makes no claim to be complete, and we will work on it continuously. For each project you will find a short description and a direct link leading to the website. This link will open a new browser window.

Be a road safety blogger
Europe

| Bild: | Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death globally among young people aged 15–19-year-olds. According to the WHO, the notion that road traffic crashes are unavoidable needs to be challenged and a pro-active, preventive approach to reducing death on our roads must be developed.
To contribute to this objective, the ERSCharter Contest focused on this theme. Messages could be sent to the ERSC that could motivate young people to become active stakeholder in Road Safety and pay more attention to the different issues that make them vulnerable road users.
The ERSCharter Contest invited young Europeans to create a message that will motivate youth to act in order to improve their safety on the roads.

Together, we are Road Safety!
Europe

| Bild: | The new campaign in 2014 is called: „Together, we are Road Safety!“. The new edition of the website contains lots of resources, materials and information on road safety, examples of good practice, road safety events, testimonials, and more.
The European Road Safety Charter is an invitation by the European Commission to take concrete actions, assess results and further heighten awareness about the need to reduce road accident fatalities. It offers European recognition to the associations that have signed up, and also makes the road safety actions they wish to carry out more visible on a European level.
The ERSC especially encourages members to develop initiatives targeting young people. Youth constitutes a key priority in the years to come, because road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among people under 24 years old. Initiatives are supposed to address different target groups, such as children from 0 - 11 years, Pre-Teens from 12 - 14, Adolescents from 15 - 17, or young adults. Age groups that have the highest percentage of pedestrian fatalities are children younger than 10 years (and adults aged 65 years or older). In addition, cyclist fatalities have the highest share among children between 6 and 14 years of age. Young people aged between 15 and 24 account for just 13% of the population in Europe, yet they still make up 25% of the deaths on the road.
„Together, we are Road Safety!“ longs to address these target groups with accurate education and training to help reducing the number of accidents and fatalities on the road.
