With the goal of recognizing road accident victims and the difficult situation of their family members who have to deal with the practical and emotional consequences of these tragic events, in October 2005 the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that called upon governments to declare the third Sunday of every November the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
Anyone can be an accident victim. But we're also part of the solution. Join us in commemorating this day on 20 November at the Conde Duque Cultural Center in Madrid between 11.30 and 14.30. During the day, Fundación MAPFRE volunteers will be working hand-in-hand with the STOP Accidents Association in support of the millions of family members affected by violence on our roads, with the aim of mitigating this global catastrophe.
During the day there will be activities for every age group, such as a cycling circuit for children and a badge-making workshop, and you can also enjoy live performances by altruistic artists such as Antonio Pastor, Chocano, Gemelo, Escarnamusa and Los Seres, among others.
