Choosing your priorities should be based on what is happening in your reality on a national and/or local level. You can check out the latest data of your country at Get Smarter.
Things are different in different parts of the world, but one thing that is certain is that more than 500 children are being killed all around the world every day.
These priorities will #SaveKidsLives.
Once you have chosen what is important, call on your government to publish plans on how it will reach the Global Goals 2020 target: by 2020, we need to halve the number of people being killed on the world's roads.
We ask you to send letters, make noise and get those plans from your government on how they will reach their target. For your convenience you can find an advocacy guide and advocacy letters for you to get going.
There are some letters for supporters in the US to send to your state legislators! Feel free to include other road safety issue areas that can #SaveKidsLives, or use our messaging in your own letter! More country letters will be coming soon but for now, you can also adjust these to you own local settings. Click on the buttons below to download them.
Using media is an advocacy strategy that can help to raise visibility for your action priority. It can get people talking, and place your issue on a decision-maker’s agenda. Media advocacy includes the following types of coverage:
Earned media, which means convincing a media outlet to cover your issue
Paid media, which entails paying for a media outlet to present your issue
Owned media, which requires that you create and disseminate content over your own website, blog or other channels you control
Social media, which includes using Facebook, twitter, YouTube and other interactive platforms to create attention and generate dialogue.
Developing your initiatives to focus on the 2020 Action Agenda Priorities can have a massive impact all around the world.
The #SaveKidsLives campaign will be showcasing the action and initiatives taken by its supporters. So, if you are undertaking action already for the campaign, we want to hear from you!
