These are our streets.

Safe & healthy streets for children, youth and climate.

These are our Streets. Yet every year, 250,000 children and youth are killed in road traffic crashes – 700 young lives lost every day. This is the leading cause of death for young people worldwide. Now, the new generation is demanding action – to deliver streets for life free from dangerous roads and air pollution, and to combat climate change.

Safe and healthy streets where space is shared equitably, which encourage walking and cycling while keeping young people safe on their journeys to school and college are possible. The solutions to transform street design, solutions that protect children, young people, and the climate are proven, low-cost, and universal.

As a leading partner in the UN’s Streets for Life movement we call for the low-speed interventions which limit transport to 30 km/h (20 mph) where people and traffic mix to make streets healthy, green and liveable.

We need streets for youth, for health, for social justice and for climate. We need streets for life. These are our Streets.

Join our call for safe and healthy streets

Our 2030 Manifesto
We will campaign in support of the SDG agenda to transform our streets:
Every child and adolescent can expect a safe and healthy journey to school.
Streets where children mix with traffic have a default speed limit of no more than 30km/h.
Every urban street has a viable footpath and protected at-grade crossings.
Every city has set an ambitious target for protected cycle lanes.
A global adolescent summit to prioritise sdg action on adolescent health and rights.

This is my journey

Double Olympic Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce reflects on her journey to victory. We join Shelly-Ann where it all began, at her high school. She demands the right to safe and healthy streets for every child, so young people everywhere can realise their dreams just as she did.

#thisismystreet

We all have the right to walk our streets and neighbourhoods in safety. To meet our friends, to travel to our education. To explore our communities. It is time to fight for our rights.

This is our future. This is our world. These are our streets. And it is time to reclaim them.
