Journalists worldwide can join a free webinar featuring the latest information on road safety around the world.

The International Center for Journalists' webinar will feature two experts who helped to produce the World Health Organization’s new Global status report on road safety. The experts will discuss the report’s findings, new country-specific road-safety data, and how journalists can use this information to engage audiences on road safety.

The featured experts:

  • Dr. Tamitza Toroyan is a technical officer with WHO’s Injuries and Violence Prevention Department
  • Duncan Clark, editorial director of Kiln, a data-visualization company

Also participating in the webinar panel discussion: the 25 journalists ICFJ named as WHO Road Safety Reporting Fellows. The fellows were chosen to attend an ICFJ workshop and the 2nd Global High Level Conference on Road Safety in Brasilia, Brazil, to be held Nov. 17-19.

The 90-minute webinar will begin at 7:00 a.m. EST / Noon (12:00) UTC on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015. The webinar will be hosted through Zoom, which can be downloaded here. Use meeting i.d. 719-356-404 to access the space, which will be opened on the day of the event.
