The International CPTED Association proudly announces the upcoming webinar in collaboration with The Safer Sweden Foundation (SSF) as the next offering in the series of Free Webinars across all ICA regions.
The Safer Sweden Foundation has recently become the latest addition to the ICA family. The foundation is a politically and religiously independent NGO (non-governmental organization) that does not take any state subsidy and operates as a non-profit organization. The purpose is to improve crime victim support and to promote the development in the area of crime prevention. The foundation focuses on producing innovative ideas, forms of collaboration and solutions.
Being an NGO, the Foundation works on many different levels to increase Sweden’s ability to prevent crime and increase safety. One of the tools being used and promoted is CPTED. Thus far, Sweden has had a good tradition of working with social prevention strategies in crime prevention, yet it has not been for the last few years that situational crime prevention is being discussed and applied more widely.
As the ICA fans out across the globe spreading and promoting its Umbrella structure, there are many questions relevant to other such NGOs across the world working in the sphere of CPTED promotion and applications. The Safer Sweden Foundation, the Swedish chapter of ICA, is bringing to you a discussion on CPTED and its adoption by NGOs across the world but with a sharp focus on Europe. This will be an online discussion forum where the esteemed panelists will share their knowledge and address all questions fielded by a worthy audience.
Topics will include:
- Working as an NGO in the field of crime prevention
- Which roles can an NGO have in crime prevention?
- How can other sectors collaborate with an NGO?
- Which challenges and possibilities can an NGO bring to the table?
- Practical implementations of the global CPTED principles in their work with schools and urban planning.
Our guest speakers will also be answering your questions. If you have any topic-related questions for our guest speakers, please enter them in the relevant section during registration. Alternatively, you can also email questions to us or pose them in the comment box during the live webinar session.
The webinar will be presented in English.
Please share this invite with anyone who you think might benefit from learning more on this topic.
We look forward to connecting with you!
