Global commemoration of the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims was endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005 as a global day to be observed every third Sunday in November each year, as the “appropriate acknowledgement for victims of road traffic injuries and their families”. The World Day of Remembrance is marked worldwide by governments, international agencies and groups such as the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims (FEVR), the International Road Victims’ Partnership (IRVP) and the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety and their associated members.
Join us for a WHO-hosted global commemoration of the World Day of Remembrance 2021, in line with the theme “Remember. Support. Act.”. Through statements, personal testimonials and a visual poem in three parts, we will together pay tribute to those who have died on the world’s roads, advocate for better support for victims and bereaved families and promote action to save lives.
