10 Days of Ideas for Safer Cities

Free for Public Servants & Policymakers | Register by 9th December

By 2030, 60% of the world’s population will live in cities. More than ever, violence in cities has sweeping impacts — for policymakers and the people they serve — in public health, crime, education and labour market success, but too often it’s tackled in a silo. How much do you know about it — and its implications for your policy area?

Developed with support from the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, this guide will walk you through case studies and practical ways to design cities that are more safe, more inclusive and more equitable for all its citizens.

What you’ll learn:

  • Case studies on policies which promote safer cities, and how they can be implemented
  • How to use data and technology to make cities safer
  • Practical steps for applying these in your policy area and geographic context

We’ll send you:

  • An email with a bite-sized activity or article, each taking 10 minutes or less, for 10 days
  • Case studies of best practices from Los Angeles to Cape Town to Recife, Brazil
  • Resource lists, quizzes and interactive content to take your learning further

You can complete as many or as few as you like, and you’ll have opportunities to connect with peers and experts who are applying these concepts in government.



Open to all participants from the public service, civil society, and academia. If you are not yet a member of Apolitical, you will be taken to a signup page that will automatically register you for the boot camp.
