The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims was started by RoadPeace in 1993. Since then it has been observed and promoted worldwide by several NGOs, including the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims (FEVR) and its associated organizations.

On 26 October 2005, the United Nations endorsed it as a global day to be observed every third Sunday in November each year, making it a major advocacy day for road traffic injury prevention. WHO and the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration encourage governments and NGOs around the world to commemorate this day.

The GRSP Regional Road Safety Seminars are high profile events of capacity building and knowledge sharing. In the year of its 20th Anniversary, GRSP brings the Road Safety Seminars back to the Asia Pacific region, and more specifically in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This year’s Seminar will focus on Leadership in Road Safety. 

The past 17 events, held in 10 countries in the Asia and Africa regions, have seen the participation of a diverse body of national and international road safety stakeholders representing government, the private sector and civil society to share knowledge and professional experiences, discuss successes and challenges, showcase good practice and build strong regional networks where previously few had existed.

The Seminars also provide an important stage for GRSP members to promote their regional good practice and demonstrate leadership in road safety and the power of collaborative action.

Please, find more information and register your attendance HERE. Places are limited.

As a programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the GRSP is a unique partnership of governments, civil society and the private sector with the mission of reducing road traffic death and injury globally.

Since the Partnership was established in 1999, we have gone on to make a profound contribution to road safety globally. Our 20th Anniversary Event will provide a rich opportunity to hear from road safety experts on the humanitarian crisis that road traffic death and injury represents and to be exposed to evidence-based solutions that are resulting in road trauma reduction.

This is also an opportunity to hear from our members about the benefits of membership of the GRSP that have resulted in long-standing commitments by a broad array of organizations committed to supporting road safety.
