The Worldwide Initiative for Safe Schools (WISS) is a government-led global partnership that aims at securing political commitment and fostering safe schools implementation globally. WISS motivates and supports Governments to develop and implement national school safety policies, plans and programs in combination with the three technical aspects of Comprehensive School Safety. For more information, view the WISS informational document (PDF) and the WISS Action Plan (PDF).
The Worldwide Initiative offers technical assistance and particular expertise to support interested Governments in implementing Comprehensive School Safety at the national level, and promotes good practices and achievements in safe school implementation for replication in other countries and regions.
