The Global Road Safety Leadership Course (GRSLC) is a biannual course coordinated and delivered by the Global Road Safety Partnership, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University’s International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU). The course is made possible through the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies.
About the training programme
This two-week residential training programme aims to build leadership capacity to design, advocate for, and implement effective road safety programmes and policies. Each year, the course is offered in a regional location as well as on campus at the JH-IIRU in Baltimore, USA. Each course welcomes 65 participants, primarily drawn from partner organizations from within the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS), as well as key personnel from government agencies, civil society organizations and Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies who are actively engaged in road safety activities.
With a focus on key leadership principles, the GRSLC explores topics centered on the five pillars of focus for the Decade of Action for Road Safety, covering topic areas including:
The road safety problem: an overview of the global burden
Road safety risk factors
The role of enforcement in road safety
Post crash response: measurement, data and case studies
Urban design for road safety
Safer vehicles and road safety
Strategic communications & behaviour change campaigns
