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 an online session where NGOs and legislators/decision makers will discuss the benefits of 30km/h in urban areas and make a public endorsement. The aim is to have an interactive and dynamic session that will feature the reality of speed in different regional contexts and allow participants to mobilize, encourage and learn.
In the run up to the 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.
