FEVR receives Royal Award for years of work towards World Day

14 November 2015

A Prince Michael International Road Safety Award has been presented to FEVR in Brasilia for their 20 years of work for World Day.

FEVR has been deeply involved in developing the World Day from its very start in the UK in 1993 to the present day, including through the World Day website, which since last year's World Day recorded some 40,000 visits from 190 countries.

It is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year - this year it fell on the 15th November. The day remembers the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. 

This year, the 20th anniversary of observing the World Day internationally and the 10th anniversary of its adoption by the United Nations is also being recognised.

Now the World Day is commemorated across all continents – not only by NGOs advocating for road safety and road victims, but also by governments and all related and relevant stakeholders: the World Day website had 35,000 visits from 188 countries in the past year alone and for World Day 2014 recorded 82 events from 41 countries.
