First United Nations Global Road Safety Week

1 July 2006

The First United Nations Global Road Safety Week will be organized during the week of 23-29 April 2007. During this week, a large number of international, national and local events will be hosted all over the world. Many partners will participate in the organization and implementation including United Nations and government agencies, as well as civil society and the private sector. Coordination will be provided by the United Nations Regional Commissions and the World Health Organization (WHO). The week, which will be modelled after previous road safety weeks organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and World Health Day 2004, will serve as a platform to raise awareness about road safety issues and call for action.

To support this week RoadSafe is joining forces with The FIA Foundation and The RAC Foundation to establish a network of schools across the world to promote exchange of safety messages. To do this we need the help of RSOs who would be prepared to suggest schools in their regions which would be willing to participate or who would be willing to participate themselves.  For more info please email awalsh@roadsafe.com
