With a purpose to raise awareness of road traffic safety issues among youth and to reduce the number of drunk driving among them, we started our initiative »Heroes drive in pajamas« in the year 2017. Last year heroes were driving in Slovenian regions Savinja, Gorizia and Lower Sava, this year we will be carrying out the activities in Carinthia, Mura, Upper Carniola and Littoral-Inner Carniola.
The initiative »Heroes drive in pajamas« has already came to life in Mura and Carinthia regions. In March we performed the first activities together with Youth Centre Gornja Radgona (MCGR) and Kompleks Youth Culture Centre (KMKC Kompleks) – focus groups with young people within the initiative »Heroes drive in pajamas«. This event was a great oportunity for young people to represent their own point of view about the road safety problematics in their region and give suggestions that would help improving them.
Youth centres have reported willing youth participation, which confirms that thay have identified themselves with the project topic. Focus groups with youth are the introduction to the next activities of the initiative »Heroes drive in pajamas« in individual regions, which will follow in the next months. The first to come will be the regional discussions, which will be co-created by young people together with representatives of local commnunities and professionals from areas of road traffic safety and public health.
Safe rides will follow in June and July, at which will our representatives of Institute DRIVE, the victims of road traffic accidents, enable for the young people to arrive safely to and from the concerts.
