In 2015-2016 Prodriver Foundation (www.prodriver.org) realised the II edition of the project „Pro Driver 25+”: its purpose was to improve the technical skills of 300 drivers by proposing them drive courses for a very accessible cost, on a track near Tarnów. The courses were conducted in small groups, using innovative tools like crash symulator, rotation simulator, first aid techniques and driving on sliding surface.
Blue Light Aware is an information and training video produced on behalf of the Emergency Services. The aim is simple - to help educate the general public on what to do to help an emergency vehicle on a "blue light run."

At GEM we worked closely with TISPOL to make the first European Day Without A Road Death (EDWARD) a success by funding a series of short educational videos and social media activity.
