Join the Long Short Walk

8 May 2013

Road traffic fatalities have become a plague on the young, and the world must commit to reducing the global death toll by half by 2030 as part of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda, according to a new report published today by the Commission for Global Road Safety.

Join the Long Short Walk, the new global social media campaign and call for road safety to be included in the post-2015 agenda.

The Long Short Walk is being launched by Make Roads Safe and partners worldwide, during UN Global Road Safety Week 6th-12th May 2013.
