ICPC’s Participation in Crime Prevention Week

As part of Crime Prevention Week, held from November 1 to 7, 2020, the Réseau d'échange et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL), of which ICPC is a member, offered a webinar on November 5 on the place of youth in the city, and how sports, arts and recreation can play a protective role in the prevention of crime,

The RESAL provided a space for discussion to highlight different sports, arts and recreational projects that have a positive impact on the lives of young Montrealers, by inviting three panelists to answer the following questions:

  • What led you to define your project to meet the needs of youth and what needs does it meet?
  • How has this project created a space for youth in the city?
  • What success factors were observed in terms of harmonious sharing in the public space?

The invited panelists were Elizabeth-Ann Doyle, Executive and Artistic Director, MU, Ernest Jr. Edmond, Founder, Les Ballons Intensifs, and Claude Majeau, Co-creator of the collective work "J'suis pas juste ...".

ICPC’s participation in a series of webinars on Pursuing Urban Safety Objectives towards the Sustainable Development Goals in Times of Extreme Disruption

ICPC took part in the Webinar Zero “Let’s change the world and make it a safer place”, organized by the Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in collaboration with the African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum (APCOF) and Fixed, on October 29, 2020. This presentation was intended to initiate a collective conversation on how to harness a shared understanding of the complexity of urban safety in order to change safety practices to be more inclusive and mutually reinforcing across sectors and disciplines. This webinar is the first in a series that has been developed to respond, through collective learning, reflection and problem-solving, to the urban safety crisis accelerated by COVID-19. In preparation for the United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in March 2021, the webinar series will provide a platform for civil society to participate productively in defining the urban security agenda for the future and to propose tools and practices for the implementation of integrated urban safety in local environments.

ICPC’s participation in the annual CMNCP conference

The ICPC is happy to have participated as a panelist at the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention's annual conference "The Future of Crime Prevention and Community Safety - Innovation, Diversity, and Multisectoral Approaches", a network that builds capacity and mobilizes Canadian municipalities to prevent and reduce crime and foster community safety and well-being.

This event, held on October 8, 2020, brought together more than 200 participants from across Canada, working specifically at the local and municipal levels in the area of crime and violence prevention and public safety. The themes discussed included youth violence prevention, the future of crime prevention and the impact of current events (COVID, the movement against police brutality, Black Lives Matter, movements against systemic racism, etc.).
