    TITLE : MAKING OUR ROAD TRANSPORT SAFER FOR CHILDREN

    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.

    Centre for Health Protection

    Supporting Organisations:
    Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, University of Hong Kong
    Asian Society for Traumatic Stress Studies
