Students’ & Young Professionals’ Symposium - 2021 CARSP/PRI Joint Conference

At the 2021 CARSP/PRI Joint Conference, the YPC hosted a symposium in partnership with Parachute and the Traffic Injury Research Foundation. The symposium offered an opportunity for students and young professionals with an interest in Vision Zero, road safety and/or health promotion to come together to explore the conference’s theme (Equitability: Road Safety for all through Vision Zero and Sustainable Safety). Three events were offered and included (i) a Career Panel, moderated by Robert Colonna, the Chair of the YPC, (ii) an interactive presentation entitled "Virtual Walkabout: Vision Zero in Montreal", and (iii) a Networking Event, which allowed students and young professionals to connect with representatives from a variety of Canadian and international road safety organizations.
