Engaging the voices of Indigenous youth in advocacy to improve road safety and injury prevention

This project will explore residents’ perspectives of injury risks in the Cherbourg community to identify appropriate solutions to address them. The goal is to demonstrate the potential of storytelling to influence community safety and injury prevention policy and programming through local community leadership.

Youth from these communities will combine photography, video and narratives to capture their lived experience, in order to provide a platform for the community to identify and target selected injury issues. The project will support the community to work with their own information and programming and in exploring how effective mainstream prevention initiatives may be adapted to Indigenous perspectives and settings.
