    Forum for Third United Nations Global Road Safety Week 2015 -- “Making our Road Transport Safer for Children”,
    Hong Kong, 9 May 2015

    Children are vulnerable in our complex road transport system, and they are susceptible to injuries as passengers, cyclists and pedestrians.

    The United Nations dedicates the Third UN Global Road Safety Week, 4th to 10th May 2015, to the theme ‘‘Children and Road Safety’’. During this week, governments, international agencies, civil society organisations, private companies - all of us who travel the world’s roads - are encouraged by the UN to plan and host events to raise our concerns and show our care.

    More information about this campaign can be found on the UN website : http://www.who.int/roadsafety/week/2015/en/

    The Community for Road Safety (CRS) in association with the Hong Kong Childhood Injury Prevention and Research Association (CIPRA) and Designing Hong Kong hold this forum to draw together related professionals in education, engineering, medicine, enforcement ..., and concerned public to share experience and to formulate solutions to better protect children on our roads. The forum also aims to further attract the attention of Government and the society in children road safety.

    Post-conference Event of “Walkable City, Living Streets”,Hong Kong, 30 May 2013, 1 June 2013

    Traffic speed is decisive on pedestrian casualties due to the combined effect of kinetic energy and braking distance. Yet there is little published information
     on traffic speeds in our urban areas. This event involves hands-on speed survey on urban streets led by Laser Tech Asia staff and CRS members.

    Second United Nations Global Road Safety Week:  “Walkable City, Living Streets” Conference, Hong Kong, 7th May 2013

    In response to the Second United Nations Global Road Safety Week dedicated to  pedestrian safety ,  CRS is co-organizing this event with Civic Exchange  and Designing Hong Kong on 7th May 2013 (Tuesday) to be held at the Energizing Kowloon East Office  (EKEO) in Kwun Tong.

    This one-day event will be an excellent opportunity for Hong Kong to draw on past experience and to generate new ideas and discussions over pedestrian network, pedestrian safety and public space/streetscape. There will be a good mix of speakers from EKEO, consultants, professionals and academics. An audience of 150 to 200- engineers, architects, landscape architects, planners, government departments and interested members of the public, is expected.
    A series of post-conference events is also being planned. Enrollment for the conference will commence in early April.
