#SpeakUp for #RoadSafety
The UN Road Safety Collaboration announced its 5th UN Global Road Safety Week under the theme “leadership for road safety”.
This initiative, to be held 6-12 May 2019, aims to provide an opportunity for civil society to generate demands for strong leadership for road safety, especially around concrete, evidence-based interventions; and inspire decision-makers to act by showcasing examples of strong leadership for road safety within various types of institutions.
Resources to assist those who are planning activities and events to mark the Week, including logo and slogan, sign boards, template petition letters and pledge announcements, and a toolkit for organizers, are be available on the dedicated web page: www.unroadsafetyweek.org/en/home
It is key to achieving road safety targets, including SDG target 3.6 to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50% by 2020 and SDG target 11.2 to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all by 2030: it is time to #SpeakUp.
