World Day of Remembrance

A Decade to Remember, looking back at 10 years Day of Remembrance campaigns 2010-2019

(#WDoR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year – to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families and many others also affected, as well as reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster.

FEVR has proposed since more than 10 years the slogan related to one of the Pillars of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety:

Road victims established this day:

Brigitte Chaudhry, former FEVR president and founder of RoadPeace (UK), came up with the idea in 1993 which was than supported by all FEVR members. From 1995, Road Victim Advocacy NGOs under the umbrella of FEVR, observed this Day – first as European Day of Remembrance, but soon as World Day when NGOs from South Africa, Argentina and Israel joined.

WHO, FEVR and RoadPeace have jointly developed a booklet

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims: a guide for organizers it can also be downloaded in Russian, Farsi & Spanish Here

WDoR official on Social Media

For the 25th WDoR Anniversary FEVR will produce a booklet and hand over to all who contributed during the 25 years from 1995 - 2020

We hope that during the next decade Road Victims will be united worldwide to further develop the WD as their Day of Remembrance and also not forget the Injured Victims and their Families
