Safety and Systems for Vision Zero: Putting Theory into Practice


Save the Date: Thursday December 6, 2018 (10amPST/1pmEST)

In this interactive webinar co-hosted by the Vision Zero Network and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, we will learn about Safe Systems, as applied internationally, and Systems Science with the goal of explaining how both philosophies can enhance roadway safety in the United States. This 1-hour webinar will cover both the theory behind these principles and potential applications in the United States.

Speakers:
Peter Furth, Ph.D., is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University. He specializes in traffic engineering, transit planning, and bicycle transportation, and has extensively studied the Dutch road safety program “Sustainable Safety.”

Kristen Hassmiller Lich, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the UNC at Chapel Hill. Her research and practice-based based work seek to advance the way we use system maps and local data to improve policy decision-making at multiple levels and to engage stakeholders in the process.
