Play • 33 min
Engaging for road safety and sustainable transport in times of war

In this episode, we are meeting Olesia Kholopik, the Director of the Centre for Democracy and Rule of Law in Ukraine. We discuss the challenges for road safety in Ukraine, the role of civil society in the transport sector, and how the full-scale war of Russia against Ukraine affects the work of the sustainable transport community. Despite the ongoing attacks against her country, Olesia has remained committed to protecting human lives in many ways – including the engagement for safer roads. Join us to hear about her impressive work as an advocate for human rights in mobility and the lessons she has learned along the way. This episode is part of WomenMobilizeWomen's campaign on "Remarkable Feminist Voices in Transport".
