2young2die is the campaign for and by young people aged between 11 and 25 and Brake, the road safety charity, to end the carnage on our roads.
The interactive campaign site – www.2young2die.org.uk – offers a range of teaching tools and resources for young people and for educators, youth workers, driving instructors and other professionals who work with them. The site is full of case studies, facts and figures and videos made by bereaved families and emergency workers on the consequences of dangerous driving as well as road safety campaign videos from around the world.
Training courses are also available around the country for those who wish to lead inclusive and inspiring workshops with young people that stimulate interest in road safety and campaigning activity. Details are available at http://www.2young2die.org.uk/training
Young people can also enter the 2young2die awards by running a road safety campaign and raising funds to support Brake’s important work spreading road safety messages and supporting families devastated by road crashes. Previous entrants have run a diverse range of campaigns, from designing videos and posters to running community fundraisers and campaigns to implement local change.
We would also encourage educators to consider using the awards as a prompt for engaging young people in issues around road safety by incorporating campaign projects into existing courses and curriculums. More information can be found at http://www.2young2die.org.uk/awards
