We are proud to announce our series of two June webinars on the topic of “CPTED in the times of COVID-19”. Our third and fourth webinars will capture the responses to the pandemic and some coping strategies that have been put in place to address the social and safety concerns associated with these unprecedented times.

The ICA – International CPTED Association brings regional diversity to the discourse on this important topic. ICA Directors from 7 ICA regions will come together as guest speakers to showcase how the issue that has affected every part of the world has been approached in their respective countries and regions. Different geo-political systems and socio-economic profiles of these countries and regions while facing the same common threat will make for a vibrant discussion. The speakers will also identify the role of CPTED in addressing safety concerns during and after the pandemic as communities transition into the recovery phase.  

The webinar will be presented as a 2-part series. Part 1 will feature speakers from the Asian, Australasian, European and UK regions. A week later, Part 2, will feature speakers from the 3 ICA regions in the western hemisphere: Canada, Latin America and the United States.

Topics will include:

  • How the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted life across different ICA regions

  • Crime trends and safety challenges during the COVID-19 lockdowns

  • Likely scenarios and foreseeable challenges in the post-COVID-19 world

  • Lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic

  • The role of CPTED in dealing with health and safety concerns during the pandemic

  • The role of CPTED in the recovery and post-recovery phases

  • Suggested guidelines and recommendations to assist in recovery and crime control

Our guest speakers will also be answering your questions. If you have any topic-related questions for our guest speakers, please enter them in the relevant section during registration. Alternatively, you can also email questions to us or pose them in the comment box during the live webinar session.
