UNESCO Chair 2021 International Online School
International Online School: UNESCO Chair on Geoenvironmental Disaster Reduction, Shimane University

Date: 6 and 13 March (Saturdays)

Platform of the online school: Zoom

Registration: 1 – 28 February

Maximum participants: 100

[27 January 2021]

 The UNESCO Chair, Shimane University, has organized international field schools in the last two years to share the knowledge regarding disaster prevention and risk reduction and enhance participants’ mutual understanding from different countries. Due to the widespread Covid-19 infection, we reluctantly decided to cancel the International Field School of the UNESCO Chair in 2021. As an alternative event, we plan the virtual International School held on 6 and 13 March 2021 via Zoom. All those who are interested in this subject are invited to join this international school. A series of lectures covers natural hazards and disasters, countermeasures, and actions for disasters related to earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, and landslides. We are confident that this virtual school provides an excellent opportunity to touch the advanced part of the natural disaster and hazard science for risk reduction.

 The participation fee is free. Registration starts on 1st February through the google form. Please feel free to contact to Dr. Sakai, T (sake@riko.shimane-u.ac.jp) if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you at the zoom workshop in March!

Sincerely,
