6 World Leader Safe Communities Dear participants in the XXI s International Conference on Safe Communities; Merida, Mexico It is with pleasure and enthusiasm I welcome you to take part in this Conference an important milestone in the development of the Safe Community movement. It is very important because it starts a new era after the first development which was concluded during the XX s Conference in Falun, Sweden, two years ago. It is also important because it has a strong emphasis on the Latin- American experiences. The Conference is therefore bi-lingual; English and Spanish! The Mexican example is of utmost importance for our future in the Safe Communities we will learn a lot from Mexico and other Central and South American countries, through the strong involvement from The National Association of Councils for Citizen Participation in Mexico, host of this Conference, and our sister organization in Cali, Colombia another WHO collaborating Centre. We will also have a key-note speech summarizing the North- American experiences and a new proposal for the future from the National Safety Council in the USA.
