Alliance Advocates 2018: Asia

The next Alliance Advocate training will take place from 26 November – 1 December 2018, in Delhi, India, for Alliance members in Asia.  Applications have now closed.

Advocates will work on a real-life project around safe school zones in the city. They will gather and analyze data and turn it into advocacy for interventions to upgrade these schools from high-risk to three-star status. Advocates will have the opportunity to present the proposals to decision makers. They will then build an action plan to replicate what they have learned in their own countries.

This is an exciting opportunity to learn about and use road safety best practices, test out new tools and methodologies, and take away tangible learning points to be translated into other contexts and environments.

Advocates will learn from experts from Youth for Road Safety (YOURS), WHO, iRAP, and the Alliance.
