Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Road safety, inclusion, equity, gender and sustainability: exploring links

ITF Meeting ITF Meeting

This webinar explores the linkages that cities are making between road safety and other public policy areas including inclusion, equity, gender and sustainability. The event is part of the Safer City Streets initiative and aims to address questions including:

  • How can all stakeholders work together?
  • Are there tangible actions that build on synergies between road safety and other public policies?
  • How are policy goals related?
  • Are there tensions between different policy goals?

City experts share their experiences, insights and projects, followed by a panel discussion and moderated questions and answers session.
