The Alliance will be running several training sessions for members over the coming months to support advocacy following the UN Global Road Safety Week and ahead of the launch of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021 – 2030 and the Head of State Meeting on Road Safety planned for 2022. These sessions are open to Alliance members only, due to capacity issues.
1 – 2 December 2021
The training, in collaboration with UNEP and NACTO, focuses on how NGOs can drive change by advocating for policies that transform streets into mixed-use spaces that can be used for a variety of activities, rather than being the exclusive domain of cars. The training will examine a holistic approach to advocate for 30 km/h speed, promote active mobility and accommodate different forms of travel for sustainable cities and communities.

The Alliance has partnered with the World Resources Institute (WRI) to organize and deliver training and mentorship for Alliance member NGOs to fast-track their capacity for planning and executing targeted advocacy activities that will result in quicker outcomes and save lives.
During UN Global Road Safety Week, NGOs made remarkable progress to mobilizing citizens in large numbers and engage with decision makers. While campaign events are important, campaigning is a subset of advocacy. This training will use real time examples and case studies to help NGOs bridge the gap from campaign to advocacy in their long-term goals and to changing policies and practices within a strategic and often political framework.
This session explored how NGOs can participate meaningfully in the decision making process in their countries to help achieve the global road safety goals.
This session explored how NGOs can hold governments accountable and push progress in their countries to achieve national commitments and global targets for road safety.
