After WDoR2020 is Before WDoR202119/11/2020
Post 1 week Post WDoR2020
How the idea came up in 2007:
Road Deaths and Injuries impact lives
Put a light in your Window
Lightning Victim Monument Zabawa
Remember AIFVS and Esperanza started the Initiative
‘Light of Hope’ Initiative
- This initiative involves the burning of a light (candle or other light, even switching on of cell-phones or torches) and the illumination of houses, porches and civic buildings – in memory of a road victim and all road victims worldwide – suggested from 6pm to 12 midnight, but especially between 6-8pm.
Launched on World Day 2007, the initiative was proposed by the French road victim organization Esperanza, who achieved both the illumination of houses, gardens, balconies and public buildings in their city – Port-Saint-Louis du Rhone and organized a symbolic transfer of light, recorded on video, from Europe (Italy) to America (Mexico).
- Since then, this Initiative has represented an important World Day event in many countries.
