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.
In Moscow in 2009 the First Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety called upon the adoption of a Decade of Action, officially proclaimed on March 2010.
In 2015 the Decade will reach the half-way point of its important path. In light of this anniversary the UN is consulting on priorities for the post-2015 global policy framework, through a survey and the FIA wanted to ensure that Road Safety is included also in the international agenda.
"MY World 2015" is a global survey asking citizens to choose their priorities for a better world. Results will be shared wit h world leaders and will be important for setting the next global development agenda and its lead by the UN.
To achieve this important goal together, the FIA earmarked 100 000 euro for the creation of Club-lead events and campaigns i n support of the MyWorld2015 initiative, supporting the signing of the UN My World 2015 survey by asking club members and citizens to vote for "better roads & transport" though this link: http://walksafe.myworld2015.org with the overall aim of 100.000 signatures globally. All awarded initiatives are initiated in May 2014.

"Giving everyone the chance to be a life-saver"
On May 8, 2014 The FIA and The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding, joining in an effort to reduce road injuries and fatalities.
In supporting this initiative, and in light of the 2014 World First-Aid day (13 September 2014), the FIA committed 100 000 euros for the implementation of S-projects dedicated to improving first aid awareness.
Consequently, the second call for S-projects is now open for all Clubs willing to promote initiatives on first aid training for road safety and post-crash recovery in cooperation with Red Cross National Societies.
The grant will fund (up to 5.000 euro) initiatives aimed at:
- Raising awareness of the importance of first aid knowledge so that victims of road accidents receive immediate care;
- Organizing first aid ‘snack’ training courses in public areas to increase the knowledge of all drivers;
- Creating first aid materials and documentation to be used in FIA Club’ driving schools.
We encourage Clubs and Red Cross National Societies to use the opportunity to promote the MyWorld2015 survey, asking participants at the events to vote at www.walksafe.myworld2015.org.

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 Grants 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.
- Social media platforms: https://www.facebook.com/UNGRSW/ ; https://twitter.com/UNGRSW
- A website to be launched by end of February: http://www.unroadsafetyweek.org/

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.
Every day, 3500 people are killed on the roads, among which young people are particularly affected as road traffic crashes are the main cause of death of 15 to 29 years old. To tackle this global challenge, the FIA launched the #3500LIVES campaign to ensure road safety messages get publicity around the world.
This year, in support of the #3500LIVES campaign and its golden rules, the FIA Road Safety Grants Programme decided to commit €200,000 to
strengthen the impact of this campaign.
Initiatives had to focus on the promotion of the #3500LIVES campaign.
Successful proposals were expected to be based on the existing campaign materials and make use of the hashtag #3500LIVES. Campaign materials was available via the FIA Networks.
All activities had to be organized and held in the timeframe, May-June 2018 and supported by strong and high quality photographic footage.
Applications were open from 8:00 am Wednesday 28 February (Central European Time), to noon Tuesday 27 March (Central European Time).
Clubs that were not already issued login details for the last Transformation project call for applications, first needed to register by completing an online registration form.

This is My Street
