Project EDWARD

Project EDWARD - the European Day Without a Road Death - has taken place during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK since 2016. The objective of the campaign, launched by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) and supported by the European Commission, is a day in which no one dies on European roads.

In the period leading up to EDWARD, the organisers would like all road users to think - even for just a few moments - about the risks they face, the risks they may pose to others and how they can go about reducing those risks. EDWARD can make a significant contribution towards further decreasing the number of road deaths and serious road traffic injuries.

How can you get involved?

 

Organise Road Safety Days

Whether you represent an association; a business; a national, regional or local authority; a school; college or university; or whether you simply care as an individual, join in by organising Road Safety Days and registering them on roadsafetydays.eu. Any activity promoting road safety culture can be part of the Road Safety Day, including information and awareness-raising activities in schools and in companies, workshops, conferences and competitions. Road Safety Days can be organised this year either on 19 September, the European Day Without a Road Death, or within the framework of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, from 16 to 22 September. The first two editions of Project EDWARD were a great success with more than 120 road safety days organised across Europe and more than 25 million people reached on Twitter. 

 

Take part in a photo competition and sign a pledge

To make your participation unforgettable, take part in a photo competition and send the three best photos of your Road Safety Day to MOVE-ROAD-SAFETY-DAYS@ec.europa.eu by 19 October. The best pictures will be promoted by the European Commission and the winner will be invited to the next Excellence in Road Safety Awards. 

You can also make a road safety commitment by signing a pledge on projectedward.eu and by taking part in the social media campaign (#ProjectEDWARD).

Join the EDWARD campaign on 19 September and during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, knowing that every single day should be an EDWARD Day!
