Booking information
Bookings : students can participate in the program in three ways. See below

Students are guided through the Road to Zero Experience Space at Melbourne Museum using a web-based app. They apply their understanding of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and the Sustainable Development Goals to the important issue of road safety.

Students complete a range of hands on experiences, respond to short answer questions, and can edit their responses after viewing high-level sample responses. Students receive the revision notes they create at Road to Zero via email.

The app consists of three modules:

  • Module 1: Action Areas Explore Victoria's road safety health promotion strategy, and then apply the action areas of the Ottawa Charter.
  • Module 2: Health Promotion Strategies Consider how Road to Zero reflects the health promotion strategies that underpin the Ottawa Charter.
  • Module 3: Sustainable Development Goals Explore how Road to Zero is working towards achieving the SDG 3 key feature ‘Halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.’

How to take part

VCE students can participate in the program in three ways:

Individual visits: Students can visit the Road to Zero Experience Space during Melbourne Museum opening hours. The web-based app launches on the student’s device when signing into Road to Zero. We recommend students allow about an hour to complete the app. Due to current government regulations restricting visitor numbers, please book your free ticket.

Class groups (self-guided): During school term, booking your Health and Human Development class visit is essential to ensure capacity. Please contact our bookings team on [email protected].
