Traffic Safety Campaign Workshop
The European Commission organised a Traffic Safety Campaign Workshop targeting youth. The workshop aimed to bring together young traffic ambassadors from high schools, universities and youth NGOs in order to collectively develop a campaign that will be publicized in the Turkish Cypriot community. The workshop was moderated by Tamer Altunay who has been involved in developing several traffic safety campaigns. The workshop, organised in partnership with Traffic Accidents Prevention Association and TRAKAYAD, took place on 27 February with the participation of 28 students from 10 schools, including high schools and universities. The aim of the workshop was not only to develop a traffic safety campaign but also to raise awareness on the importance of traffic safety and on the main causes of traffic crashes and how to prevent them by encouraging young people to reflect on traffic safety and to think about preventative measures and messages. A road map for a possible campaign with messages for the future was developed by youth.
