Today we see the online launch of the #SaveKidsLives campaign. This is the official campaign for the Third United Nations Global Road Safety Week. #SaveKidsLives is calling for action to save children’s lives on the roads around the world and its very easy for you to take part! Watch the 70 second animation below for instructions:
Read it, Sign it, Show it, Deliver it!
Kids the world over inspired the Child Declaration for Road Safety. They voiced their thoughts and fears about travelling on the roads. They said what they need to be kept safe on the roads. In a joint effort, the world’s experts also outlined measures that must be taken. Together we call upon decision-makers worldwide to take action and protect children.
By signing the Child Declaration for Road Safety you are helping to:
– call for action to stop the growing number of road deaths worldwide;
– ask decision makers to save kids’ lives by putting road safety in place;
– support the movement for road safety led by children around the world.
Show your support for the campaign by taking an easy #Safie:
1) Download the signboard!
2) Write your road safety message
3) Take a photo.
4) Share it on Facebook,Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #Safie and #SaveKidsLives.
Every month we will choose the #Safie of the month and show it on the website.
In May 2015 the Third UN Global Road Safety Week will take place. Around then, we will all deliver the Child declaration to our local and global leaders.
