1. ILCAD Campaign
International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) is a worldwide initiative to improve awareness of level crossing safety. Since 2009 the campaign has been spearheaded by the International Union of Railways (UIC), the worldwide railway organisation with the support of the railway community around the world. About 50 countries usually take part in the ILCAD annual campaign.

ILCAD and TRESPAD 2024 target "Vulnerable users" with the slogan "Beware of trains. Life can change in a split second".

Each year, a partner country hosts the launch events at which good practices and projects to improve safety and reduce the accident toll are shared.
This conference attracts railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics, and many others from around the world who are working to raise awareness about the dangers surrounding level crossings.

2. ILCAD Launch Conference
Both ILCAD and TRESPAD campaigns will be launched at two international conferences (held in person, in Spanish and English) to exchange ideas and best practices on level crossing safety, trespass and suicide prevention.

The events are co-organised by the International Union of Railways = UIC
and the Argentinian Transport Safety Board= Junta de Seguridad en el Transporte (JST).

The conferences will be followed by technical and social visits on 7 June.
