This project is an extension of “UBeSAFE” road safety awareness campaign designed for secondary school students and teachers and aims to advance their knowledge in road safety. The project is initiated by Global Shapers Ulaanbaatar Hub in collaboration with Asian Development Bank and partnership with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Road and Transportation as well as the Traffic Police of Mongolia.
1.25 million people die globally due to road traffic accidents with 60% of these deaths taking place in Asia and the Pacific. Especially, Mongolia ranks No. 7 for the highest number of road deaths for an ADB developing member countries. Therefore youth have to be involved in the solution to this alarming trend. Road Safety toolkits have been developed and distributed in both developed and developing countries across the globe. Youth have been key partners in developing these toolkits, thus Global Shapers Ulaanbaatar Hub is taking the initiation on designing and providing educational toolkit on the topic of road safety to secondary school students and teachers in Mongolia.
Our main goal is to educate Mongolia’s next generation and prepare model drivers and pedestrians of the future. We will work with public and private secondary schools to provide toolkit for teaching road safety and building good behaviours. We want safer roads and to build ideal behavioural habits.
