Round-Trip launching in Vilnius will take place on May 13, 2015 at 3 pm. at Gedimino av. 28/2 (hall on the 2nd floor). This event, promoted by Round-Trip project Lithuanian Partner, the NGO ANNONA, seeks to analyse and connect the issues of traffic safety in Vilnius and citizen participation in decision-making process.
Lithuania has one of the worst road accident’s statistics in the EU (90 deaths per 1 million inhabitants), making Lithuania the fourth least traffic-safe country in the EU, after Bulgaria, Romania and Latvia. Out of 294 people killed on Lithuanian roads in 2014, 9 % were killed in Vilnius (27 people). A short public discussion will address solutions for this problem.
The guidelines for the public discussion will be:
- EU traffic safety and car safety regulations, fuel quality and alternative transport by Raul Cazan, ANNONA environment and green transports expert;
- The fight for traffic safety in Pilaite community by Virginija Vingriene, Pilaite community activist and chairwoman of Lithuanian Peasants and Green Union Vilnius branch.
As in other Round-Trip launching events, the project will be presented, the online platform will be launched, visibility material will be delivered and the public will be invited to participate in future project’s activities.
