Uruguay: UN Global Road Safety Week

As part of a new United Nations Global Road Safety Week (15-21 May 2023), Fundación Gonzalo Rodríguez, with the support of UNASEV, WHO/PAHO and CITA, will carry out an activity, on Tuesday 16 May, to rethink mobility in Uruguay, according to the recommendations of the Global Road Safety Plan developed by the United Nations. This seventh edition focuses on sustainable transport, in particular the need to walk, cycle and use public transport. Road safety is both a prerequisite and a result of this change.

The activity will include a conservatory and a practical laboratory for the implementation of public policies in the territory, aimed at decision-makers at national and departmental level.
