The European Safe Community Network (ESCON) works for Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion in Europe

ESCON aims at strengthening existing International Safe Communities in Europe and promotion of  the formation of new communities to be accepted into the the Safecom movement.

The Global Burden of Disease Studies has documented unfair distribution of injury by socioeconomic strata in Europe.
This gradient, existing within and between countries, must be addressed.

Our board has representatives from Novi Sad in South Eastern Europe through the Baltics and as far north in Scandinavia as 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle in Norway.

Together we are working against public indifference towards the burden of injury and trying to promote community based interventions against injuries e.g. traffic accidents , drownings, burns, falls, violence, and suicide.
