#CommitToAct at the European Commission
Lotte Brondum, Executive Director, presented the Alliance’s #CommitToAct campaign at the High Level Group on Road Safety at the European Commission this month. The High Level Group includes ministerial representatives from countries within the European Union (EU). Lotte called for EU governments to commit and take specific action to further reduce road fatalities in the run up to the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Sweden next year.
Specifically, she encouraged them to:
- Work with NGOs in their countries to design meaningful commitments
- Make a public declaration of the commitments at a roundtable
- Put the commitments into action
- Bring their NGOs with them to the Ministerial Conference in Sweden and demonstrate leadership.
The European Commission will hold a Round the World Roundtable during EU Mobility Week in September. The event will be held in Brussels, Belgium. More information to follow.
