30 December 2016

The Safe Roads| Safe Kids Summit 2016 conference that took place in Washington DC has proved to be a great success. It was designed to increase the visibility of global road safety on the international agenda and to decrease the number of deaths and injuries among children.

The Alliance participated in the event by contributing to a panel discussion on creating successful alliances.

The conference also focused on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically as they relate to safety for children. The event featured awards for outstanding activists and speeches by key leaders in the field. It took an in-depth look at key regions of the world including China, Qatar and Latin America.
