Dmitry Sambuk, international coordinator at the FIA Foundation, is to give a keynote presentation at the Road Safety GB National Conference in Chester, 15-16 November.
More than 185 people have already registered to attend the conference and exhibition and final numbers look set once again to top 200 attendees.
Dmitry’s presentation will focus on The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2010-2020. He will give an historical overview of the Decade of Action, from its early stages through Moscow Ministerial conference and debates at the UN General Assembly, through to its worldwide launch on 11 May 2011. He will also outline forthcoming events and future initiatives.
As international coordinator at the FIA Foundation, Dmitry is responsible for the Make Roads Safe Campaign as well as the Decade of Action.
He was a key member of the Russian diplomatic team which secured the Decade of Action proposal at the United Nations in March 2010.
He also manages and coordinates a road safety network of NGOs in Eastern Europe and South Caucasus, known as EASST (Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport).
Dmitry holds a BA and MA in International Relations and Politics (European Studies) from the St. Petersburg State University, Russia.
Before joining the FIA Foundation in April 2009 he worked for 2.5 years at the Inter-parliamentary Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States, developing its international relations and cooperation with other organisations.
There is still time to register to attend. Fees for Road Safety GB members are £250 for residential delegates and £50 for day delegates (plus VAT).
