Celebrating UN Global Road Safety Week with 30km/h

From December 2020 to May 2021, as part of our Helmets for Families program in Cambodia, AIP Foundation organized numerous activities to increase community helmet use and road safety knowledge through a training workshop to empower teachers to become road safety models. Educational murals were painted around school gates and walls to encourage helmet use and safe practices among students. Parents, students and relevant stakeholders were engaged in both the training workshop and educational murals.

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 situation in Cambodia with its 4th wave of outbreaks in February 2021, AIP Foundation continues its efforts to make roads safer for the communities in Cambodia. In addition to various activities implemented to make commuting safe for Cambodian workers, AIP Foundation joined global efforts to raise awareness on road safety, particularly among children and their parents. During the 6th UN Global Road Safety Week from May 17 to May 23, AIP Foundation worked closely with schools and target communities to implement road safety awareness activities. Training was conducted for students about the importance of helmets and speed limits. Together with strengthening commitment from government stakeholders and the local communities for active participation to protect Cambodian children from road crashes and brain injuries, AIP Foundation also campaigned for the additional action to protect children in Cambodia from brain injuries resulting from road crashes and the 30km/h speed limit around school zones. 

The journey to improve road safety for children is one that needs continuous attention and engagement. Read on to know more about our activities across Asia to advocate for safer roads, and what we can achieve together.

UN Global Road Safety Week 2021: A global celebration with a united message

May 23, 2021

From 17th May to 23rd May, countries around the world joined forces to pledge their support for the 6th Annual Global Road Safety Week (UNGRSW). The sad truth that still exists is that every 24 seconds another person is killed in a road traffic crash, but these crashes are preventable. UNGRSW is an opportunity for the world to call on policymakers at local and national levels around the globe to act for low-speed streets to enhance road safety and save lives.

Since 2007, the #Love30 campaign has been at the heart of all UN Global Road Safety Weeks. It advocates for streets for life where people live, work, and play by making 30 km/h (20mph) speed limits the norm for cities worldwide. Not only does a speed limit in urban areas prioritize the well-being of children and youth, but it also creates safe, healthy, green, and liveable cities.

This year, AIP Foundation participated and led several events to support and advocate for #StreetsForLife as part of UNGRSW. At the global launch, Mrs. Mirjam Sidik, CEO of AIP Foundation, discussed how 30 km/h speed limits worldwide will bring us closer to our vision of a world where people can live, walk and play without barriers with specific, proven examples in the Foundation’s program countries.
