With less than two weeks until the start of the Festival of Road Safety, only limited spaces remain available for the event’s eight live discussion sessions and workshops.
The Festival of Road Safety replaces the National Road Safety Conference and will run throughout November 2020.
The Festival programme includes a mix of pre-recorded keynote presentations, podcasts, workshops and live discussion sessions – and a bumper fringe programme comprising more than 20 presentations covering a wide range of road safety and related topics.
In total, the programme comprises more than 40 presentations and sessions, which will be released or staged live at 10am and 2pm on every working day from 2-27 November inclusive.
The four live discussion sessions and four workshops take place on Zoom Webinar – and while they are free to attend, pre-registration is required.
The live discussion sessions – covering cycling, the school run, autonomous vehicles and e-scooters – are limited to a maximum of 100 participants.
These sessions are being held on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm, and are almost fully subscribed.
- Cycling – how can we increase participation while ensuring/improving safety?
- The School Run – keeping pupils & parents safe while encouraging them to walk and cycle more often
- Connected & Autonomous Vehicles – what are the road safety challenges?
- E-scooters – are they safe or do they pose a threat to users and other road users?
The workshops will be hosted every Wednesday afternoon (2pm) and are limited to 20 participants per session.
One workshop – focusing on how to make campaigns more meaningful and memorable by applying Behavioural Insights – is already fully subscribed, but a small number of places remain available on the following workshops:
- Introduction to road safety delivery – an introduction to a new course developed by the Road Safety GB Academy
- Designing effective messaging – an introduction to a new course developed by the Road Safety GB Academy
- Mates Matter – using social media to change behaviour on the road
