On Tuesday, October 5th, the ICPC was on a panel as part of the virtual conference: “Community Safety in the Midst of a Global Pandemic: Who Are We Leaving Behind?” organized by the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP), an ICPC partner, that took place from October 4th to 6th, 2021, gathering nearly 80 participants.
The session in which the ICPC took part was called “Eradicating Violence: Essentials That Do Not Leave People Behind” and discussed community safety and crime prevention, as well as an evidence-based and inclusive approach to violence prevention. Questions discussed included:
- What are the evidence-based solutions that should be more used in Canada?
- How to implement these solutions?
- What can we learn from cities that succeeded in making changes necessary to succeed?
- Can we learn from cities like London, UK, that applied a public health model to violence prevention?
The ICPC would like to thank the CMNCP for the invitation.
