Prince Michael congratulates the FIA Foundation on its achievements.

21 June 2022

In a speech congratulating the FIA Foundation on its first twenty years HRH Prince Michael of Kent said:

'In 2009 I was thrilled to present my Premier Award to the FIA Foundation.

'That was the year that the charity’s campaigning efforts resulted in the first Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety. As Patron of the Commission for Global Road Safety, I was proud to work alongside Lord Robertson and David Ward, and our partners in the World Health Organization and the World Bank, to secure such strong recognition for the issue. But without The Foundation’s leadership we would have achieved little.'

'Through a combination of its funding, its energy and its ideas, the Foundation has helped to transform the global road safety agenda. Many of the advocacy achievements of the last twenty years – the UN Ministerial conferences, the first Decade of Action for Road Safety, a road safety target in the UN development goals, and now a first ever UN youth summit – began as proposals made by this charity.'

The Foundation marked its anniversary with a conference in London where it reviewed its achievements highlighted its work and set out its future agenda.
