The role of the World Day

The World Day of Remembrance (WDR) exists to create a global culture of proper road safety. Celebrating the memory of those friends and relatives who died or were seriously injured on the world’s roads sets a collective right to demand responsibility from all road users.

It also establishes the right to demand from governments – besides prevention programmes and initiatives – a serious post-crash response that includes thorough investigations, criminal and civil justice and medical (physical & psychological) and social care.

WDR History: From 1995, road victim organisations under the umbrella of FEVR observed this Day together – first as European Day of Remembrance, but soon as World Day when NGOs from Africa, South America and Asia, who were associated members of FEVR, joined.

(Brigitte Chaudry MBE, founder and president of RoadPeace (UK)  FEVR president (2004-2010) and Author & Editor of WDR website editor@worlddayofremembrance.org )

Therefore  FEVR is the creator and first owner of the World Day of Remembrance. Already from 2000, the Pope and other religious leaders remembered road victims worldwide on the 3rd Sunday of November, calling it ‘World Day’.

This years Poster beside a short video clip developed by the WDR team ( Brigitte-Denis & Muge Maggie) will again be offered for free to all those worldwide who are interested  to participate and share this common initiative dedicated to  all Road Traffic Victims with their families & friends

From Global Remembrance to Global Action across the Decade: This years poster is related to Pillar 5 of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety:
