XXIII Jornada Mediterránea para la Seguridad Vial

The challenges of the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030

The challenges of the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030

June 22nd from 10:00 to 13:30h 

We are starting the Second Decade of Action (DoA) for Road Safety 2021-2030, proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations, and soon we will have the final version of the Global Plan of Action (whose period of allegations has recently ended) and that will serve as a guide to achieve the common goal of the Decade 2021-2030 to achieve at least a 50% reduction in injuries and deaths from road crashes in that period.

From P(A)T we have prepared this year’s XXIII Mediterranean Conference to discuss with leading experts and authorities with responsibility in the field, what we have learned from the previous Decade 2011-2020, where we are and what we must do to accelerate the reduction of casualties that will bring us closer to zero casualties in 2050. The international community accepts that this is a cross-cutting issue that is closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals, to the protection of the environment, to the quality of life and health of citizens, to social rights and citizen engagement.

Do not miss the conference on June 22, as we will discuss all this and much more and we will surely learn and reach conclusions that will help us move forward.
