Vision Zero Challenge
Lead your city from #Vision2Action
Project site: visionzerochallenge.org
The Vision Zero Challenge is a WRI-led partnership challenging city leaders to save lives by taking bold actions on road safety.
Vision Zero is a new approach to road safety that has become a global phenomenon. But too often, strong commitments are not followed by equally strong action and implementation. The Vision Zero Challenge spotlights the importance of moving from #vision2action by celebrating those cities that are taking responsibility for road safety and providing the targeted support that political and technical leaders need to make safe mobility systems a reality.
The Challenge exposes city leaders to the tangible actions needed to implement a Vision Zero approach to road safety, helping them reflect on how to start implementing a paradigm change and then to act on implementation. At the conclusion of the challenge, outstanding cities will be recognized for their progress, commitments or actions as #Vision2Action Champions.
The inaugural 2019-2020 Vision Zero Challenge focuses on cities in Latin America and the Caribbean, with the goal of targeting other regions in future rounds.
