Webinars

The Alliance works in partnership with member NGOs who are experts in their fields to produce short online training sessions on a range of topics. The purpose of these webinars are to build up the skills of members in particular areas. The webinar topics are informed by the learning needs assessment conducted in 2015. 

Alliance webinars are open to everyone, not just Alliance members, via our YouTube channel. Each session is around 20 – 30 minutes long and features a presentation from an expert. The webinars deliberately use simple technology and graphics to ensure that they can be accessed easily even where internet bandwidth is weak. 

Previous series have included three-star roads presented by iRAP, social media presented by Safe Kids International, and the crash course series covering seven main risk areas: distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, child restraints, helmet use, drowsy driving, and seat belts.
