Community Champion Campaign 2021
What is it?
The Community Champion Campaign is a program for those people who have completed the Safecity Safe Campus Campaign organized in March 2021. Looking at the enthusiastic response of the first campaign and the willingness of people to continue to work with us, we have designed this campaign to take a step further in making the community safer.
The Community Champion Campaign is an initiative to engage youth in making public spaces safer by designing action-oriented programs for the community to address safety issues.
Aims of the campaign:
- To engage youth in making community safe
- To figure out location-based trends or issues in safety of the community
- To use the data of Safecity app in the community
- To find community-driven solutions to safety issues of the community
Duration of the Campaign:
July 2021 – October 2021
Roles and responsibilities of Community Champions:
- Use a set of data of app (within your area or campus) and see trends
- Identify a solution/ action you can to help make that place safer
- Share your data and findings/impact of your action with the community or stakeholders
