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 ...".

The Réseau d'échanges et de soutien aux actions locales (RÉSAL), of which ICPC is a member, is proud to announce its third annual colloquium focusing on the place of youth in the city.

This year, due to social distancing measures, the RESAL is offering a new formula of three webinars that will lead to a face-to-face colloquium in the spring of 2021, if the situation allows.

Three panelists will be presenting their projects:

The following questions will be addressed in particular:
