Experience a safe and quiet street. You can make use of the campaign's messages, visuals and materials, and together we can create a symbolic "slow down" of streets in cities and towns all around the world. By working with your local authorities, you can reclaim and #SlowDown your streets so they are safer for all road users.
We have teamed up with the 20's Plenty Campaign to create a toolkit about how you can slow down the streets in your community.
In the context of the Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week, hundreds of events are being organized across the world to highlight the dangers of excessive and inappropriate speed and promote proven solutions for managing speed, a major risk for road traffic death and injury.
Slow Down Days provide an opportunity for organizers to show that slower speeds can not only save lives, but also deliver additional benefits for individuals, communities and governments as a whole by improving the liveability of communities.
To offer advice on how to organize and host such an event, WHO, with support from the 20’s Plenty for Us campaign, has released Slow Down Days: a toolkit for organizers. The toolkit provides step-by-step guidance and concrete ideas for engaging the public and drawing the attention of the media to ensure a successful Slow Down Day.
