PRE-CONFERENCE 2021 EVENT

Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase

Event Dates

Monday 22 to Friday 26 March 2021.

About the Virtual Pre-Conference Event

To maintain momentum of the 14th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion from 2020 to 2022, and ensure that there is an opportunity between events to engage, network and continue knowledge sharing for the global safety community, there will be a Virtual Pre-Conference Global injury Prevention Showcase held from Monday 22 to Friday 26 March 2021.

Showcase Theme

The Virtual Showcase will continue the with theme developed for Safety 2020 - ‘Innovation, Engagement, Action: for a safer future’.


The world sits at a nexus with technology changing the way we work, low and middle income countries faced with addressing a growing injury burden especially around road traffic and the need for new innovative solutions to help provide action for a safer future including addressing violence and self-harm issues. More and more evidence is being generated, adding the greater need to translate research into action, to translate pilot projects to large scale projects. 


For injury prevention and safety promotion to be effective and create a safer future engagement will be key; this will include engaging with communities, politicians, researchers, people and other stakeholders. While research is important for developing the evidence base there is an ongoing need for action to ensure appropriate evidenced-based policy development, program delivery, increased funding, collaboration and development of future generations of injury prevention experts for a safer future.

Showcase Objectives

Injury prevention and safety promotion is a maturing area. It involves many disciplines and interest groups who are active in diverse settings. The objectives of the Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase are as follows:

  • Facilitating virtual international information sharing and cooperation, and the further development of the science of injury prevention and safety promotion;

  • Provide evidence on good practices by which national progress in planning and development of injury prevention initiatives can be measured;

  • Create a virtual environment for knowledge sharing, collaboration and relationship building, creating a ‘global injury prevention and safety promotion community’ leading into the 14th World Conference on Injury Prevention & Safety Promotion (Safety) 2022;

  • Encourage young researchers and health promotion practitioners to start developing a career in the injury prevention;

  • Recognise and encourage inter-sectoral liaison and collaboration, including encouraging and embracing diversity;

  • Develop the knowledge base of injury prevention practice; and

  • Connecting a growing number of professionals and stakeholders to the WHO policies for violence and injury prevention.

Showcase Target Audience
