The UN Global Road Safety Week will be held 17-23 May 2021. It is a valuable opportunity for government institutions, legislators, NGOs and other civil society organizations and individuals to mobilize under the banner of a global campaign, giving them a global identity and mandate for their campaigns: together we have a stronger voice.
This year the UN Global Road Safety Week will focus on lowering the speed limit to 30km/h in urban areas, under the tagline Streets for Life and #Love30.
The Alliance will support regional events with the WHO Global Network for Road Safety Legislators and the EU Transport Community. NGOs will conduct site visits with legislators to document the reality about speeding, and host the #Love30 Global Rally, a global session to call for 30km/h in urban areas.
19 May 2021, 2pm CEST
The #Love30 Global Rally will be a call to action for 30 km/h limits in urban areas. It will be an interactive session featuring the experience of advocating for low-speed streets from both the NGO and decision maker angle and will culminate in legislators’ public endorsements for 30 km/h limits and a call to mobilize and work together to make low-speed streets a reality.
19 May 2021
To coincide with the #Love30 Global Rally, the Alliance invites you to join our Call to Action Day to show your support for 30 km/h streets.
Throughout the day, we, our NGOs, and partner organizations will post photos and videos of road safety advocates, NGOs, legislators, and others supporting 30 km/h. Like, share, and post your photos and videos too!
Add your voice to our Twitter Storm at 9am CEST, 3pm CEST (straight after the #Love30 Global Rally), and 9pm CEST, to create a flood of 30km/h endorsements.
In conjunction with the UN Global Road Safety Week, the Alliance is supporting regional discussions with WHO’s Global Network for Road Safety Legislators and the EU Transport Community for regional online discussion events to build support for 30 km/h default limits in urban areas. The European and African sessions have been completed and the Latin American session will be on Friday 21 May 2021. You can register below.
