F1 and the United Nations

The FIA and the United Nations are working together with the launch of the UN Global Road Safety Week (April 23-29), which is designed to raise awareness of the scale of the global road safety problem, especially amongst young people. The FIA "Make Roads Safe Campaign" is calling on the United Nations General Assembly to approve the first ever UN Global Ministerial Summit on Road Safety and to agree an international strategy for road injury prevention. Formula 1 drivers have been recruited to help the cause with Michael Schumacher speaking at the launch of the UN Road Safety Week in London on April 23 and Alex Wurz speaking at the UN World Youth Assembly for Road Safety in Geneva on April 23-24.
