European Road Safety Charter


Each autumn XIU calls on its members to bring the issue of visibility for young cyclists to their attention. During XIU ACTION WEEK we ask schools and parents ' associations to simultaneously take action. In this way, we want to create a group feeling for the young people. And at the same time encourage and inspire schools and parents ' associations by showing that they are not alone in their struggle. The actions in schools are quite varied. It can be about a ' fluo-breakfast ', a ' fluo-music performance ', 'fluo poster campaign, ' fluo flashmob ' etc. There is comprehensive coverage through our website and social media of these events in order to inspire others to also take action. XIU ACTION WEEK takes place from 3 to 7 november 2014. Every year we also simultaneously launch a contest. The intention is providing a creative and fun way to work with young people on the topics of fluo and visibility. This year's competition is the ' FLUO-RAP ' in which young people are challenged to convince other youngsters why visibility is important in a rap-song. All participants are rewarded with a package containing visibility material, gadgets and cinema tickets with which they can reward visible pupils. The winning schools are elected by a professional jury and voting through social media thus involving the youngsters themselves.
