Vision Zero International course
Sweden is one of the world´s leading countries in the development of traffic safety with the goal of reducing the number of fatalities
and serious injuries in road traffic. Vision Zero is the basis for all road traffic safety work in Sweden and once again
we proudly offer you the Vision Zero Academy international course of road traffic safety.
Date: 14th-18th of September 2020
Place: Elite Park Avenue Hotel, Kungsportsavenyn 36-38, in Gothenburg
In 1997, the Swedish Parliament adopted a ‘vision zero’ goal for road traffic, with the long-term goal that no one would be killed or seriously
injured within the road transport system. Vision Zero is an ethical approach, but also constitutes the strategy of forming a safe road transport
system. Vision Zero has led to major changes in both working methods and interventions, which will be presented in this course.
After the course the participants will have gained a deep understanding of Vision Zero as a policy innovation and how this could affect
working methods, as well as how a safe road transport system can be created. Participants will also receive a platform for the understanding
of how to continue the work with road safety issues in their respective countries.
For the fourth year in a row,
we will now offer the Vision Zero International course. During the course, interesting lectures will be
mixed with study visits to clearly exemplify the Swedish model. At the end of the course the participants will receive a diploma as proof of participation.
The course is targeted for a broad audience, as we welcome everyone who works in practice with traffic safety issues in various agencies
such as government authorities, industry, municipalities, NGOs and academia. It is also highly relevant for experts within UN authorities,
development banks, and other international organisations.
The course lecturers will primarily be Swedish Transport Administration experts in their respective fields as well as guest lecturers
from other authorities, municipalities, academies and industry. All the lectures and course material are in English.
