Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – May 10, 2022

Empowering youth across Asia-Pacific

To empower our next generation, the first step is to listen to their concerns and ideas. Youth engagement is critical to solving the road safety crisis. In that spirit, we are delighted to announce the regional expansion of the Heads Up! video competition, organized by AIP Foundation and AA Vietnam, with support from The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Road Safety Grant Programme, FIA Region II, and FIA Foundation. This activity is under the Heads Up! program that puts the voice of young people at the heart of improving road safety.

Regional expansion to protect young lives
Following two exciting and engaging workshops on ECE 22 revolutionary, safe, and affordable helmets, meeting United Nations safety standards, and how we can best engage youth in road safety, the program will now expand its video competition from covering four countries, Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam to six more countries in the Asia Pacific region, including Australia, Bangladesh, Chinese – Taipei, India, Indonesia & Singapore. This expansion creates further opportunities for students in our region to be able to participate in the competition and share their ideas on how to raise the awareness around quality helmet use among their families, peers, and general road users.

Raise your voice!
Heads Up! empowers youth across our region to tackle the global road crash crisis by creating a road safety video, raising awareness of the importance of quality helmet use. The video competition is open until 31st July for all university and college students.
