AIP Foundation hosts Youth Engagement App training for safer mobility

02.12.22

As part of the innovative Big Data road safety programme, AI&Me: Empowering youth for safer roads, together with the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) and the Ministry of Transport (MOT), the AIP Foundation hosted the first hands-on training of the Youth Engagement App (YEA) to key government stakeholders and teachers in Ho Chi Minh City, Pleiku City, and Yen Bai.

The main objective of the training was to provide an introduction to the AI&Me programme as well as to launch the YEA App with instructions on how to use it. 

Raise your voice: A Youth Engagement App for safer mobility 

The YEA offers young people an efficient way to identify and report high-risk road conditions, providing them with a platform for their voices to be heard.

Through the app, government officials will receive data as actionable recommendations to make effective and evidence-based road safety interventions.

This will make it easier to identify blackspots for more in-depth analysis to determine the star ratings for school zones.

The trainings were facilitated by MOT & iRAP’s leading technical experts in their field: 

  • Shanna Lucchesi, Project Coordinator, iRAP
  • Rafaela Machado, Star Ratings for Schools Global Coordinator, iRAP
  • Mr. Le Van Thanh, Specialist, Infrastructure Department, MOT

As a result of the training, teachers will be better equipped to use the YEA App and play an active role in providing training to 1800 students from 18 pilot schools to use it.

In turn, students will be able to raise their voices for streets for life.

The AIP Foundation is committed to ensuring that all neighborhood streets are livable, safe, and sustainable.
