World Day website is re-launched

10 November 2012

The website dedicated to the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims has been re-launched.

The objective is to provide inspiration and help to people who wish to participate in observing the World Day of Remembrance and organise ceremonies, events and displays in their communities and countries.

The newly re-designed website will represent an extensive archive of photographs and accounts of events held all around the world. It will reflect the annually increasing global observance of the World Day.

It invites participation in various global initiatives:

  • Light of Hope Initiative (burning of light and illumination of civic buildings
  • Coalition against Road Trauma (with involvement of the health sector)
  • Calls for Official Recognition and Naional Memorials in every country.
  • Day of Peace of World Day.

These will make the World Day more widely known, as well as link countries through sharing common objectives and the common remembrance of 'lives lost and broken'.
