5x STOP is COOL

5x STOP is COOL

With the project 5x STOP is COOL we are trying not only increase road safety by educating youngsters but also offer psychosocial support for young victims of traffic accidents.
Workshops consist of a variety of social games, collaborative working methods, work with victims of accidents, evaluation, survey and online forum, which would encourage children and young people to think and understand the importance of changing their lifestyle due to healthy and responsible attitudes to alcohol and other psychoactive substances and to establish a responsible attitude towards road safety.

The methods used are: working in groups; problem solving and social games related to traffic and road safety; role-playing; lecture by an expert in the field of traffic safety; watching preventive videos with traffic and road safety content; meeting the victim of a car accident and listening to his/her story (a story of his/her life before and after the accident, the struggle for life and the daily difficulties faced by the injury), psychosocial support of traffic related victims ...

Methodological approach was created in collaboration with experts in the field of education, psychology, road safety and based on best practices from EU programmes but complemented for Slovenian public.

If you work together with external partners, list the most important partners and briefly describe their role. 
The project is supported by Slovene Ministry of Health, Ministry of education, Traffic Safety Agency, High Schools and Municipalities. Partners, thatwere involved in creating the project: Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, University Rehabilitation institute and others.

Welches Problem wollen Sie angehen? 
The aim of the program is to show and explain road safety to teenagers and hopefully change their attitude and standpoints toward it in the process: developing tolerance, attention and positive attitude towards other traffic participants, learning basic for wearing a seat belt and a helmet, the consequences of speeding, aggressive or drunk driving… The last two are the main causes of traffic accidents in Slovenia and with our initiative we want to decrease the number of accidents that happen because of alcohol and speed.
Was planen Sie zu tun? Beschreiben Sie Ihre Ziele: 
Aim of the program is to informally educate and inform teenagers about road safety. We want to change their attitudes, values and behavior. By raising awareness of the importance of preventive behavior and encouraging young people to a healthier lifestyle
Describe the characteristics of your target audience 
There are two target groups regarding the project: - Youngsters age 12 – 19 years - Young victims of traffic accidents (age 15 – 30 years) The first target group struggles with lack of information regarding road safety and sense of responsibility for other road participants, peer pressure that increases already risky life-style. They are daily participants in traffic but are not aware of the threats, risks and dangers. The aim of the program is to show and explain road safety to teenagers and hopefully change their attitude and standpoints toward it in the process: developing tolerance, attention and positive attitude towards other traffic participants, learning basic for wearing a seat belt and a helmet, the consequences of speeding, aggressive or drunk driving… The second target group involves young people who were because of traffic accidents and head trauma forced to change their life plan, goals and life cycle. They are no longer capable to finish school, go to work, have a family... They are excluded from what majority accepts as “a normal life” and represent an outcast of society. Educational workshops represent a possibility of again interact with their peers, tell their story to public and educate or inform youngsters about the consequences of aggressive driving, speeding, driving under influence of alcohol, drugs... With psychosocial support from Zavod Varna pot’s supporting psychologists and social workers, young victims found new motivation, stimulation and mission in life. Together these two target groups teach and encourage each other, give each other support and learn from each other. All this represents a new path toward better road safety.
