Preventive information and education for fighting against the effects of natural disasters

Project background

This project is a continuation of previous general activities carried out by ECMNR in the field of Prevention against disasters and Education. It specifically aimed to promote Risk Culture and to develop Anti-Risk Education Activities in Schools. For more information, see the presentation of the 2011 project "The Promotion of Risk Prevention Culture regarding the Natural Disasters and the Implementation of Anti-Risk Education Activities in Schools".

Taking into consideration that the natural disasters destroy future projects and make people’s life harder, we formed a strategic partnership for improving the preparation to disasters. By means of this partnership, we intended to demonstrate people that by a correct provision of information and efficient preparation we can reduce both the consequences and number of victims of natural disasters. The correct provision of information to the population during the activity represented a priority, by means of which we wanted to minimise the adverse effects of any disaster. Being aware of what to do and more important of what not to do in emergencies can save life!
