Through a series of lightning talks, followed by panel discussion and exchange between panellists and members of the Global Parliament of Mayors, this session will seek to establish a shared definition and understanding of “safer nights,” and then showcase examples of good practices from cities worldwide. In addition to this contributors will be asked to propose potential indicators that can provide deeper insight into urban safety and security beyond traditional crime metrics. As UN-Habitat’s Urban Safety Monitor continues to evolve, these proposed metrics will feed directly into Lab activities of generating and validating new indicators for urban safety and wellbeing
