FEVR main event for WDoR 2019 in Brussels11/11/2019
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
(#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 is proposing since more than 10 years now the slogan which is related to one of the Pillars of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety: The slogan for this year’s slogan of the World Day "Life is not a car part" relates to Pillar 3 of the Global Decade of Action: Safer vehicles & Mobility. In addition, it accords with the general theme of the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety that will take place in Stockholm in February 2020 – “Achieving Global Goals 2030”.
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.
18. November 2018 we celebrated WDoR 25th Anniversary - 25 years WDoR
