About Vision Zero Conference

Join us for international knowledge sharing, capacity building and inspiration on road safety and the Vision Zero.

Taking road safety to the next level

The Global Ministerial Conference in Stockholm 2020 marks a real shift. The conference elaborated road safety as an integral part of United Nations 2030 Agenda, where health, climate and equity are the main headings. Road safety has a significant role in the 2030 Agenda not only by having its own target, but also as an enabler for other qualities and ambitions of the society. More importantly, road safety is now on the same level as global warming, equal rights, safe workplaces etc. and has a legitimate access to many processes and tools that could speed up the actions leading to a reduced global road toll. Targets for the sustainability goals are absolute and indivisible. We now also have the United Nations Resolution on Improving Global Road Safety and the Global Plan for the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety to support us. This conference will give us an opportunity to link road safety to other sustainability challenges, to go from visions to implementation, and to take road safety to the next level. 

Main topics

  • Vision Zero in a rapidly changing world
  • The 2030 Agenda as an enabler for road safety and vice versa
