Always staying focused on our commitment to Goal Zero and as a member of the European Road Safety Charter, we organize and support initiatives that mobilize both civil society and institutions so that effective measures are taken to improve road safety, striving every day for safe, healthy and sustainable mobility.

Being a member of the European Charter allows us to keep promoting the idea that road safety is more than just a common goal, it is a shared responsibility of all social actors, to raise awareness of good practices in road safety and be part of a community that highlights the importance of road safety in all EU countries and beyond.

Each year, the Road Safety Excellence Awards organized by the European Charter highlight the best practices of its members. A good example of this are the winners of these Awards in the 2023 edition, chosen from among fifteen shortlisted initiatives. Here they are:

  • Best use of data to promote road safety: Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) – A mobility observatory (MOB) to collect data.
  • Best road safety project for road users with reduced mobility: VZW Symfoon – Unobstructed pavements with Team Trottoir in Brussels.
  • Best project promoting fitness to drive: Zavarovalnica Triglav and AMZS – In Slovenia, refreshing walks for seniors with a monitor.
