The NC Vision Zero Leadership Institute is team training resource for North Carolina communities that have or are planning to start a Vision Zero initiative.
The NC Vision Zero Leadership Institute is a key component of NC’s Mutual Learning Coalition, Action and Implementation Support model for Vision Zero. The Vision Zero Leadership Institute is designed to meet communities wherever they are in their Vision Zero planning—whether they are just starting out, working on reinvigorating an initiative, or planning the implementation of a Vision Zero plan. Community teams of 3-5 multisector partners come together at the Institute to learn, plan, and collaborate next steps to take back to the wider set of community Vision Zero partners, with hands-on support from skilled group facilitators. The Vision Zero Leadership Institute is hosted annually by UNC and draws on the collaboration of a variety of partners with expertise in areas including coalition-building, road safety principles and best practices, public health, and more!
Who can participate? The NC Vision Zero Leadership Institute is team-based and is designed for multi-sector community teams of 3-5 individuals. Communities can be of any size, at any stage of implementation, and can be planning Vision Zero at a local (municipal) or regional level. Teams must be based in North Carolina.
What can I expect? The NC Vision Zero Leadership Institute is held in-person for two consecutive days (typically in June). Prior to the in-person sessions, there may be virtual sessions participants are asked to attend. Institute sessions involve a mix of presentations from a wide range of experts across stakeholder groups, as well as “team time,” or strategic team planning sessions, facilitated by a member of the UNC support team. Content and activities are tailored to meet the needs of communities and give teams the chance to work together to develop a firm Vision Zero foundation and concrete action steps, relevant to their current needs.
