Project background

The BeSafeNet project was initiated under the umbrella of EUR-OPA to achieve three main goals:

1. Promote a culture of safety among youth:

  • Raising awareness on the implications of their actions and their perception of emergencies.

  • Replacing fear with a culture of preparedness. 

2. Disseminate knowledge to multilingual societies:

  • Create a common knowledge database of best experience.

  • Disseminate information in several languages for the benefit of the wider society.

3. Become an interactive tool:

  • Open the BeSafeNet website to other users and organisations for their benefit and comment.

  • Enrich its content by contributions based on real-life experiences. The target is the general public, especially - school teachers and students.

Project implementation

European Centre for Disaster Awareness - Cyprus :
The Olympiad is an online competition between schools on the theme “Better knowledge against disasters”, and is open to secondary schools in the 26 member States of the Agreement. The age limit to participate is 16 years and under. The competition will give students a chance to increase their knowledge on natural and technological hazards that they could face even outside of school. The students will learn the adequate behaviour in these situations and how to reduce/prevent as much as possible the potential impact of disasters.
