International Safe Communities

  • Safe Communities America is part of an international movement to improve partnerships, enhance injury prevention efforts and promote safety at the local level. The International Safe Communities​ network includes more than 300 communities.

    Regional networks also were developed to facilitate further collaboration among Safe Communities members. Safe Communities America is a founding member of the Pan Pacific Safe Communities regional network, which includes more than 100 communities from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States.

    Webinar: Injury Prevention as Social Change


    Pan Pacific Safe Communities Network launched its 2017 webinar series Feb. 13 with Injury Prevention as Social Change. The webinar examines injury and violence prevention as a public health issue, and how the shift from focusing on the individual to focusing on a population can substantially affect the way we evaluate injury prevention research and practice.

  • Safe Communities History

    The Safe Communities movement grew out of the First World Conference on Accident and Injury Prevention, in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1989. The Manifesto for Safe Communities, emerging from that conference, provided the foundation for the international Safe Communities movement, and for Safe Communities America.
