The 2018 Summit on “Transport Safety and Security” will address issues ranging from terrorism and cyber-security to road safety and extreme weather disruption, including the risks and benefits of automated driving. Safety and security are core concerns for transport.
A transport system that is safe and secure enables passengers to travel without fear and allows businesses to ship goods reliably and efficiently. Enhancing transport safety and security is also an essential element in the implementation of two major international agreements, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
The ITF Summit is the world’s largest gathering of transport ministers and the premier global transport policy event. The Summit will take place from 23 to 25 May 2018 in Leipzig, Germany. Around 1400 decision-makers from more than 80 countries are expected to attend, including more than three dozen ministers. Participants come from governments, business, international organisations and academia.
We will be taking part in a panel session at theInernational Transport Forum focusing on safer and more secure mobility. This session will feature examples of some of the most effective safety and security information and education campaigns. Public awareness campaigns influence people’s habits and perceptions - often via an emotional angle, sometimes with a focus on children - leading to a safer, more secure mobility.
Speakers for the panel include:
Founder and Director,
Eastern Alliance for Safe
of Public Transport (UITP)
Minister of Transport
and Communications, Norway
