The theme of the 6th UNGRSW is 30km/h on urban streets where people walk, live, and play, under the slogan: Streets for Life and hashtag #Love30 (or #Love20 where mph are used).
There is strong evidence that maximum 30km/h roads save lives, especially among pedestrians, cyclists, children, and young people, and have environmental and other benefits.
NGOs around the world will use the week to push toward commitments for 30km/h, recognizing that different countries are at different stages in that journey, that policy change takes more than a week and a campaign and that change in attitudes, policy and implementation will be incremental.
Alliance members can apply for a small grant toward their UN Global Road Safety campaigns. Check out the criteria and find the application form.
The Alliance will have regional events in Latin America and Europe, leading up to a #Love30 Global Rally on Wednesday 19 May 2021 during the UN Global Road Safety Week.
Sign up to the campaign and sign the open letter via the global campaign website.
