GLOBAL ACTION

Yearly advocacy campaign: media events or initiatives in support of global actions. The FIA allocates up to 200 000 € yearly for projects. Clubs will be able to apply for a maximum ceiling of 5 000 € per campaign.



As announced by the UN Road Safety Collaboration, the 4th Global Road safety Week will focus on managing speed.

Speed contributes to around one third of all fatal road traffic crashes in high-income countries, and up to half of all those in low- and middle-income countries.

To build momentum and reach the Sustainable Development Goal of halving the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents by 2020, the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme has committed €200,000 in support of this 4th Global UN Road Safety Week, which will take place from 8-14 May 2017.

During this week, FIA Clubs will be encouraged to advocate for appropriate and safe speed management and to raise drivers’ awareness of the risks associated with speeding.

The call for applications was open from 15 February to 15 March 2017 for FIA Clubs wishing to take part in this global action to reduce the number of speed-related accidents.

Each full Member Club was permitted to submit one application for initiatives to take place between 8 and 14 May. Clubs that were not already issued login details for the last M-Project call for applications first need to register by completing an online registration form.

Successful initiatives are expected to be based on the advocacy materials which will be made available on the WHO Website for organisations interested in supporting the 4th Global UN Road Safety Week.


Extensive use of communication channels is strongly recommended to ensure the success of Club initiatives.

The FIA encourages all organisations hosting speed-related events to register their initiative on the Road Safety Week’s campaign website to inform and inspire others.
