Project report – Road Safety ConsciousnessEditorial Team
Erasmus+ Youth exchange project “This is the Road to Life – Road Safety Consciousness” was implemented in Cyprus between 18-27th November, 2021 and involved participants from Cyprus, North Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Lithuania, Serbia, Poland and Greece.
The project aimed to promote and support safe, pleasant learning environment based on non-formal methods for youths with fewer opportunities, as well as to develop youths’ awareness on the importance of Road Safety Consciousness through NFL and experiential learning.
“I loved participating in this project. Taking part in this project gave me a different perspective on driving. Now I feel like I will drive more responsibly and encourage others to do that. I am thankful for facilitators to allow me to rethink my actions and make me act more mature. I recommend for everyone take part in the Erasmus+ project because it is an amazing opportunity to meet different people from all around the world, learn more about certain topics, and travel. I truly believe that everyone should have some similar experience at least once in life to widen their worldview.”
“It was my third Erasmus project. With every project I gain social, communication, language, analytical, public speaking skills, which are very useful in my study program management. I met a lot new people from another countries and I hope to be in contact with them If they or me need help in the future. I didn’t expect that guests who talked about road safety, their experience in this field would change my mind so drastically. Now I want to share it with my friends and tell them about what is the consciousness of irresponsible driving and above all to say how important is to respect yourself.”
The project was implemented by Network for European Citizenship and Identity and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of European Union.
