Event: The ShLOW! (Show me How Slow) project

The ShLOW! (Show me How Slow) project, led by the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), is organising a Camp on Speed Management to take place in Brussels from 3 through 9 May.

ShLOW! focuses on the work of committed young students who will be encouraged to run a local campaign or concrete action to reduce speeding in road transport with the support of ETSC and its partners. The first stage for the students is participation in a "Camp" in Brussels, which provides a one-week training on speed management.

Using the knowledge acquired during the Camp, the students will, on their return home, carry out an individual project on Speed Management at the local level. During their projects, the students will receive the support of consortium partners. At the end of ShLOW!, the most successful student will be invited to Brussels to receive an award.

50 places on the Camp are available. All types of student are eligible - undergraduate, masters and PhD.

Further information and application forms for the Camp can be found on the ShLOW! website - . Note that the deadline for applications has been extended, and that they can be accepted until the end of April.

Editor's note: And we thought that our word "slowth" was terrbily ugly. Shlow poses a serious threat.
