Around the world on Tuesday 25 September, individuals and organizations took action to commemorate the anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to demonstrate to world leaders how many people stand behind the Sustainable Development Agenda.
The campaign involved 500,000 people in 998 cities in 131 countries led by 1289 individuals and organizations.
Road safety NGOs including many Alliance members took to social media using the campaign hashtag #Act4SDGs to demonstrate action towards SDG 3.6: “By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.” Many held or took part in events to draw attention to the SDGs. Others linked what they were doing on the day to the campaign. The International Road Victims’ Partnership, which includes many Alliance members, coordinated a signboard campaign with NGOs posting photographs of themselves on Facebook and Twitter.
