What we do

For nearly thirty years HRH Prince Michael of Kent has played a leading role in supporting improved road safety both in the United Kingdom and around the world. The Prince established his awards scheme in 1987 in the UK and now fully international, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognize achievement and innovation in road safety worldwide. Each year the most outstanding examples of international road safety initiatives are given public recognition through the scheme and the winners are invited to a Gala Presentation held in London, where the Prince announces his Premier Award for that year. In addition to the international awards, the Prince annually presents a Decade of Action Award to recognise major contributions to the Global Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. Over many years the Prince has visited award winners in Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia and America to see at first-hand their achievements and has an unrivalled experience in seeing successful road injury prevention in practice. Prince Michael served as Patron of the influential Commission for Global Road Safety, and strongly supported the current Decade of Action for Road Safety. Now as patron of the newly established Towards Zero Foundation, HRH continues to lend his support to improved global road safety. These awards are organised and managed by RoadSafe.
