We are pleased to inform you that the ‘Good practice’ section of the ERSCharter website is now open for submissions.
A good practice can be any set of actions (strategies, measures, methods, approaches etc.) that have been successfully addressing a road safety problem. If you have undertaken a project falling under this description, share it with us by clicking here.
By submitting your good practice, you will be eligible to win an Excellence in Road Safety Award. This year we have a special “school challenge” with two subcategories (infants and children, and pre-teens and adolescents).
This special school challenge not only addresses the good practices organized by the schools themselves but also the good practices organized by other external entities (such as enterprises, associations, local/public authorities, the police…) for the schools and scholars.
Important to know is that the call is also open for less recent but still ongoing good practices.
The main evaluation criteria are:
“To what extend leads your initiative to new approaches and practices?”
“How do you estimate the impact of the initiative at local, regional or national level?”
“Will the initiative allow the transfer, dissemination or application of results, experience, knowledge and good practice on a large scale?”
“How successfully is the initiative promoted and disseminated?”
“Is there a plan to continue some activities in the coming years?”
“Can the impact or the potential success be measured?”
The previous Award winners and other applications can be found here.
The guidelines to help you with your application are on this page; at the same page the guidelines for youth commitment can assist you with your application for the special school challenge.
The 2019 Award ceremony will probably be held in June 2019 in presence of Violeta Bulc, EU Commissioner for Mobility and Transport. During this Award ceremony we will also celebrate the 15th anniversary of the European Road Safety Charter, which was established in 2004 by the European Commission’s Directorate General for transport.
More details on the deadline for applications and further information on our special school challenge will be announced in January.
