Our Director and COO, Supreet K Singh, was one of the speakers at the Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2018 Feature Conference (24-25 October) in Kaunas, Lithuania where she spoke about the work we do at Safecity, encouraging people to share their stories of sexual abuse in public spaces on our crowdmap and thus using the information to create safer public spaces that are accessible to all, especially women and girls. She also spoke about how important it is to provide a safe ecosystem for women and girls in order for them to reach their potential and have secure inclusive sustainable cities.
We received a standing ovation for the work that we do and are extremely honoured and grateful!
