Let’s combat the leading global killers of young people.

Let’s start with our streets.

Every year 500,000 young lives are tragically cut short due to road traffic injury or breathing toxic air, where vehicle emissions are a significant contributor. Road traffic injury is the No.1 killer of young people worldwide. Air pollution continues to damage the health of millions more. Meanwhile, our cities are not safe, especially for women and girls who too often suffer harassment.

We’re calling on global leaders to prioritise the health, rights, and futures of young people. And we’re joining those working on critical issues facing youth such as mental health, sexual reproductive health and rights, and violence.

Together we’re calling for a Global Adolescent Summit to breathe life into our unsafe cities and fight for the health and rights of every young person. We want governments and the international community to step up and prioritise policy, funding, and design for safe walking and cycling, that promote health for all, save lives, and protect the environment.

It is time to challenge the status quo. Will you join us? Read our 2030 Manifesto for change here

We demand safe and healthy streets

  1. We have the right to use safe roads and streets without threat to life or health. 
  2. We have the right to breathe clean air.
  3. We have the right to access my education without risk of injury.
  4. We have the right to explore the world in safety.
  5. We have the right to use streets free from violence.
  6. We have the right to be heard.

With your voice we will demand global leaders step up and prioritise the needs, and futures, of all young people.

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.
