Road Safety GB has announced the return of the Festival of Road Safety in 2021 – and is looking for speakers and participants to take part in the online event.
The Festival of Road Safety first ran in November 2020 and was a big success, with more than 10,000 visits to the Festival website – and very positive feedback from many road safety professionals.
Following the cancellation earlier this year of the 2021 National Road Safety Conference due to the ongoing uncertainty with regard to COVID-19, Road Safety GB decided to run the Festival again in November 2021.
The 2021 Festival is sponsored by Jenoptik and will run Mon 1 – Fri 26 November inclusive. It is being organised and managed on behalf of Road Safety GB by the team at Stennik, who have successfully delivered the National Conference for more than a decade.
As was the case last year, all the content will be aired free to view by all – and will comprise a mix of pre-recorded and live presentations, workshops, podcasts and live discussion sessions. A full programme, giving dates and times when content will be published, will be available closer to the time. Speakers will be added to the programme page on the Festival website as they are confirmed.
Road Safety GB is inviting expressions of interest from road safety practitioners, academics and others who would like to participate.
Anyone interested should contact Edward Seaman by email in the first instance, with a brief outline of their proposed presentation (pre-recorded or live), workshop (live) or subject for a podcast (pre-recorded).
There are also opportunities for organisations to support the festival in the form of sponsorship and an online showcase. For more details please contact Nick Rawlings by email or on 01379 650112.
