have to say about this module

This first module on the global road safety problem facing youth by YOURS Academy is a great introduction for young leaders to learn about evidence-based solutions and how to be part of the solution. This course is both informative and fun and I enjoyed reviewing it! Good luck to the next generation of road safety ambassadors.

Congratulations to YOURS on launching this new road safety learning platform. The YOURS Academy will become the gateway for young people and decision-makers to level up their knowledge on the topic. The Academy is fun and innovative! I wish you success in educating the next generation of road safety activists.

YOURS has done an amazing job at bringing traditionally dry road safety knowledge into the 21st century with the YOURS Academy. I particularly like the use of gamification to transfer knowledge in a creative way and mix of learning activities to ensure that learners are engaged as active participants. I encourage all youth who want to start their road safety journey to take this module.
