5th UN Global Road Safety Week: #SpeakUp

The theme of the Fifth UNGRSW was leadership, calling for strong leadership to push strategic, evidence-based action to save lives on the road. The slogan was #SpeakUp.

#SpeakUp Demands

NGOs shared their road safety demands with decision makers, using #SpeakUp signboards, petitions, and events to highlight the dangers that people face on their everyday journeys and call for urgent action to reduce the 1.35 million road traffic deaths that occur on the world’s roads every year. Read more and see demands from around the world on the official UNGRSW website HERE.

Watch some of our members making their demands at the UNGRSW kickoff event in Chania, Greece.
