UN Global Road Safety Week 2019 – ‘Leadership for Road Safety’
From 6 – 12 May 2019 the UN Global Road Safety Week will take place. The theme will be ‘Leadership for Road Safety’. It is widely acknowledged that stronger leadership for road safety is needed to achieve Vision Zero. To effect change, leadership is needed at many levels: global, national, municipal and community levels, and within various types of organizations, including governments, international agencies, NGOs, foundations, schools and universities, and private companies. Enlightened leaders are able to provide a vision of what the future might look like and to mobilize action to achieve this.
Goal: The goal of the 5th UN Global Road Safety Week is to generate a demand for stronger leadership for road safety worldwide to help achieve SDG and other road safety targets.
UNHCR will participate in the activities leading up to and during the Global Road Safety Week and we invite you to join us:
This is my journey: on our website you can document through photos and videos your typical journeys on the road, with a view to identifying the concrete risks you face daily during your journeys. Based on these risks, we generate a particular demand or demands from our leaders for concrete, evidence-based interventions.
This is my demand: The demands identified through the “This is my journey” phase will be presented to senior management in charge of road safety. The demands will be articulated in the form of petitions, supported by the photos and videos you have captured of your daily journeys.
This is our solution: During the Week, we invite you and your colleagues to come up with solutions that will address the demands generated.
This is my journey, I like to share:
