#CommitToAct is a campaign led by the Alliance and its NGOs. We call on our leaders to uphold our rights to safe roads and journeys.
#CommitToAct builds on the momentum of the new UN resolution on Improving Global Road Safety adopted in August 2020 and the hopes of governments and communities to build back better following the COVID-19 pandemic. It calls for local solutions to a global issue. NGOs identify demands that are relevant in their own country and raise awareness, mobilize support, and demand change for specific, meaningful action.
#CommitToAct is a flexible campaign that you can adapt to your country and context. You don’t have to do all the activities below; just chose the ones that are most relevant to you.
