‘Brussels Declaration’



In May 2009, more than 100 representatives of 70 NGOs from 40 countries came together for the first time in Brussels at a meeting hosted by the World Health Organization. Using their unique expertise and perspective, participants compiled 33 recommendations to governments to improve road safety.

Their passion is reflected in the words by Olanrewaju Osho, from Safety Alliance, Nigeria, one of the 70 NGO signatories of the ‘Brussels Declaration’: “Change doesn’t just happen, it is propelled by men and women whose spirits are provoked and inspired to make a difference.”
