Safe System Ambassadors are the pillars of our ambassador program. We rely on our Safe System Ambassadors to build and maintain the foundation of our ambassador program. Entry-level advocates who actively promote the Safe Systems Approach through social media, local events, and community outreach. They serve as ambassadors, educating others about the importance of a holistic approach to road safety.
Top-tier advocates who have reached the forefront of dedication and impact in advancing the Safe Systems Approach. Vision Zero Vanguards lead major initiatives, collaborate closely with government agencies, and advocate for policy changes that align with the principles of Vision Zero. They serve as vanguards, inspiring others to join the cause and making significant contributions to the success of It Could Be Me.
Intermediate-level advocates are recognized for their efforts in promoting the principles of the Safe Systems Approach. Systemic Advocates take on leadership roles, organize educational initiatives, and actively contribute to systemic changes that enhance road safety within their communities.
