The digital world is expanding. As we create new realities, and expand the possibilities in these digital universes, it’s important we also use the opportunities new and existing technologies present us with to find solutions to current real-world problems.

One of the most pressing problems of our day? The safety of vulnerable groups in public spaces, in particular violence against women and girls. In the year ending March 2020, 207 women were victims of homicide attacks in England, Scotland and Wales. 

In the wake of the high profile cases in 2021, we launched our Safe Spaces heatmaps, as a potential means to tackle the broad issue of violence against women. With a greater desire from the public for accountability, informed decision-making and the capacity to participate in the decision-making process, we must look at the role digital tools can play to meet this need, and how they have already served to increase awareness of the issue.

In this free webinar at 11 am on the 26th May, a group of women will reflect on the steps required to reach regional and national goals, and the vital role far-reaching community engagement and public participation plays in combatting Violence against women and girls. 

In this webinar, we will cover

  • Overview of projects and learnings to date - the data story of our Safe spaces work
  • The significance of Commonplace in combating VAWG - How Commonplace helps to achieve greater diversity and inclusion by ensuring  each voice is heard.
  • How does community engagement contribute to shaping the space across activism?
  • How can we replicate a sophisticated and proven data-driven methodology worldwide to encourage an efficient approach to planning and policy-making?
