Global road safety actions 2023: What you need to know (2023)
Presented by Parachute and CARSP, this webinar built upon the previous webinar and provide an update on the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, along with tools coming out of the eighth global meeting of NGOs advocating for road safety and road victims that took place March 6 to 10, 2023 in El Salvador.
We also shared turnkey social media messages and printable creative tools for all road safety partners to use for the upcoming UN Global Road Safety Week, running May 15 to 21, 2023, which calls on policy makers to #RethinkMobility to make walking, cycling and public transport safe and convenient so that people can make the shift to active, sustainable mobility.

Change for Good Roads, Episode 1 – Sustainable Cities
Economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable cities are key components of healthy, active and safe urban roads.
Safe, healthy, and sustainable urban roads are only possible if we treat the underlying issues as a complex problem, one that involves not only urban planning, but also public health, engineering and other sectors, and retains a focus on inclusion, equity, sustainability, community and more. There are a range of evidence-based frameworks and interventions that guide global efforts toward safer, healthier, and more sustainable roads. The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 promotes the Safe System Approach and Vision Zero and sets targets and goals to guide us to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Through cross-sectoral collaboration, organizations and individuals would be able to make our cities both safer for all road users and healthier for all citizens.
Sustainable cities are ones that not only address transportation and the environmental impact, but also the social and economic aspects to sustainability.
Change is hard. Involve communities early in discussions about changes that will make their neighbourhoods and cities more sustainable to explore the rationale for changes, learn about their ideas, concerns and questions about sustainability.
Road safety is part of sustainable cities for two reasons. The first is that by improving the safety of roads for all road users, it will result in more people walking, biking and taking public transport. The second is by reducing transportation by motorized vehicles, greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced.
Former City Councillor for the City of Toronto Mike Layton joins host Pamela Fuselli for an in-depth discussion.

The role of equity in road safety and mobility interventions
Safe mobility in urban areas – Equity
Equity in Vision Zero and road safety (2022)
Six Es of traffic safety are commonly used in Vision Zero planning: Engineering, Enforcement, Evaluation, Education, Engagement and Equity. The newest E, Equity, addresses how different barriers and power imbalances can increase road hazards: for instance, lower-income neighbourhoods have poorer built environments and lack of access to transit.
Join moderator Valerie Smith, Director, Programs at Parachute, in conversation with panelists from York University, The Centre for Active Transportation, and WATT Consulting Group` to learn more about applying an equity lens to Vision Zero and road safety planning.

Vision Zero: The Next Generation (2022)
The next generation has spoken, and they are in favor of Vision Zero. Based on a survey done by Desjardins in 2022, 61% of survey respondents between the age of 16-34 support the adoption of a Vision Zero strategy in their region and 56% support increasing government funding for Vision Zero. Road crashes are the third-leading cause of death among young people ages 15 to 24 in Canada. Join modertator Umayangga Yogalingam as she discusses Vision Zero: The Next Generation with Priynka Patil from Parachute, Sana’ Khasawneh, Junior Project Manager at YOURS, and Arianne Khorasani, Max Novak and Emily Shibata, members from our Canadian Youth Road Safety Council.

Vision Zero Canadian Landscape 3.0 (2022)
In 2019, Parachute published the Canadian Landscape 2.0, which profiled 24 jurisdictions. This included reviewing the current status of all jurisdictions in the process of considering, adopting or implementing Vision Zero; presenting the key features of their programs, using a consistent framework of the five (now six as of 2022) Es of traffic safety (further described in Section 1); and discussing the successes and challenges faced by these programs with key stakeholders, as well as any advice they have for jurisdictions contemplating formal adoption.
This issue of the Vision Zero Canadian Landscape (3.0) revisits these jurisdictions and profiles new areas that have adopted or are adopting Vision Zero. This focus is responsive to earlier feedback from our Parachute Vision Zero Network stakeholders, who had requested a better understanding of how to approach Vision Zero, and the facilitators and barriers to embracing a systems approach to increase road safety and end road fatalities and serious injuries.

We also share information about the upcoming #CommitToAct 2022 campaign, running from May 16 to 20, and discuss the role NGOs, local government and other stakeholders can play to encourage their government leaders to make specific, meaningful commitments to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries.
The Global Plan for the New Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030: What You Need to Know (2022)
The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 has been proclaimed by a UN General Assembly Resolution with a target to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50 per cent by 2030, recognizing the gravity of this global issue.
The Decade of Action is underpinned by the Global Plan, launched Oct. 28, 2021, which aims to inspire and guide national and local government, as well other stakeholders who can influence road safety. Those include civil society, academia, the private sector, donors, community and youth leaders, and other stakeholders as they develop supporting national and local action plans and targets. Through advocating for the Safe Systems Approach and providing recommendations based on best practices and research, the plan is an important resource both within Canada and abroad.
The webinar will provide an overview of the Global Plan, including three parts of road safety action: what to do, how to do it and who does it. Panelists will also discuss how road safety needs to be integrated into other policy agendas such as climate action and equity, to increase its reach and influence. The webinar will also refer to Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025.

Change for Good Roads – An intersectoral approach to urban road safety (2022)
Change the language, change perceptions: how we talk about road collisions (2021)
For many years, road safety advocates have argued it’s inaccurate to use the word “accident”to describe road collisions because that implies nothing could be done to prevent them. Thanks to advocacy by Parachute, the Canadian Press now has made this change to its Caps and Spelling style manual. Under the word “accident”it now reads: “avoid in reference to motor vehicles; prefer crash or collision.” A change in Canadian Press style means an enforceable change in language used in news coverage across the country.
Read the report detailing how we achieved this policy change and our plans for future advocacy.

Making a Vision Zero commitment in Canada (2020)
This paper, developed with generous support from Desjardins, provides national thought leadership on a practical implementation of Vision Zero in Canada. It briefly summarizes the roots of Vision Zero and the current status of Vision Zero across Canada. It also provides a high-level review of Vision Zero and road safety frameworks from Canada and internationally. By using an injury-prevention approach based in public health theory, the paper provides information not only on Vision-Zero-specific implementation but will also address the contextual factors that impact these efforts, such as community readiness. Tools created by Parachute and links to other tools supplement the paper by providing useful resources that address the needs of stakeholders at all stages of their Vision Zero commitment.

Youth hold an important place within Vision Zero. For one, children and youth are among the most vulnerable road users. In Canada, young drivers die in crashes at a higher rate than any other age group. Canadians aged 5 to 14 are at greater risk of being killed as a pedestrian than any other age group. On the road to zero, many jurisdictions are making the safety of children and youth their first priority, as evidenced by Vision Zero for Youth.
