Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Only 4 weeks to our World Day of Remembrance (WDR) 2015!
Several events are already listed on our website – http://worlddayofremembrance.org/archives/archives-2015/.
Please send your event details via http://worlddayofremembrance.org/submissions/event-submission-form/
WDR 2015 Poster and Video
This year’s poster highlights the two important anniversaries we are celebrating – 20 years since the Day began to be observed globally and 10 years since it was recognized by the UN.
The poster is offered in 20 languages via the World Day website –http://worlddayofremembrance.org/posters-to-share/– for event organizers to download, print and display, along with details of their events.
Posters requested by organizations, with their own logos added, have already been sent out.
The 2015 Video will be ready shortly.
Photographs of road crash victims for a Global Wall of Remembrance
The background to the numbers 10 and 20 on the poster are photographs of people/loved ones killed in crashes. They will all be added together to form a “Global Wall of Remembrance” on the World Day website.
We also hope that this “Wall” will be shown at some point during the Second Global High-Level Conference on Road Safety in Brasilia, taking place within days of our World Day.
We would like to add more photographs, from all countries of the world – please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your contributions to the website are important!
Apart from details of your past events, please provide photographs of local road victim memorials, testimonies by injured victims and bereaved relatives, poems and anything else to complement the website content for your continent.
