Rights of Way
Walking safe from traffic should be a right for all! Watch Zindzi Mandela and Michelle Yeoh introduce this new video for the Long Short Walk, our new campaign for pedestrian rights and safer roads for children, in support of the UN Global Road Safety Week 2013. The campaign aims to encourage people to send in photos or video of a short walk - it can be a walk to work or school, a favourite walk or a photo of a dangerous road that needs fixing. All these short walks will be combined to form the Long Short Walk - a record of how we walk in different countries around the world, and a call to action for governments to give pedestrians a higher priority in transport and land-use policies. The Long Short Walk is also a step in the campaign for road safety to be included in the new Sustainable Development Goals, post-2015. So get involved, join the Walk!
