Support from WHO and the UN Regional Commissions
The United Nations Regional Commissions and WHO regional and country offices are ready to provide advice and guidance to groups wishing to plan and host events in the First United Nations Global Road Safety Week. Contact information for the regional focal persons in these offices can be found in the section “Whom to contact” on page 16. Depending on their resources and on the potential impact of the events being proposed, these offices may consider providing modest financial support for activities in countries.
Logo and slogan
The official logo and slogan for the First United Nations Global Road Safety Week will be made available – in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish – through the Week’s official global web site. When preparing materials in support of the Week, this logo and slogan can be used, and translated into other languages as needed. Organizers are reminded that both logo and slogan are WHO copyright property, and should be used only to identify events and materials related to the First United Nations Global Road Safety Week. The logo may not be reproduced for the purpose of self-promotion or for obtaining any commercial or personal financial gain, nor may it be utilized in any manner which implies WHO endorsement of activities or products of a commercial enterprise.
Package of advocacy materials
A package of advocacy materials for use in conjunction with the Week is being prepared, and will include posters and stickers. A few additional items are currently being considered for inclusion in the package, which is expected to be available in printed form by January 2007 at the latest. The “Order form for the First United Nations Global Road Safety Week package” may be used to obtain the relevant materials from WHO.
The official global web site for the First United Nations Global Road Safety Week has been launched and others are being issued by the United Nations Regional Commissions, such as that prepared by UNECE. These will be regularly updated up to and beyond the Week. The official global web site will contain all materials related to the Week, including the logo and slogan; this toolkit for organizers; posters and stickers; and other items. The web site will also feature country-by-country descriptions of events being organized by partners around the world. The press corner will contain press releases and other material relevant to the media. The official global web site for the Week will also link to the web sites of the United Nations Regional Commissions and WHO regional offices, providing more information about the Week.
