The story of Silly Timmy Disaster Comic - What happened next?

An initial comic strip was developed that could be used either in newspapers or via the Internet to help younger children access DRR messages. 52 episodes of the comic strip were completed and initially distributed on the edu4drr.org website, as well as through social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The comic strip scripts and montages were created by Justin Sharpe, using an iPad App called ‘Toon ToolKit’. The characters were initially drawn and created by John A Abbott of Jot Studios and…See More

Tackling Systemic climate risks - Some possible approaches

This blog post outlines some of the issues of systemic climate risk, possible approaches to dealing with it that aren't necessarily being utilised (around learning that is meaningful and actionable) and is driven from my knowledge and work on disaster risk reduction learning. It's a short blog, but if you are in a hurry or need a policy brief, this is provided at the top of the blog!

Silly Timmy Disaster Comic in Russian - Неразумный Тимофей!

The original versions of these are almost four years old now, but after some being translated into major European languages that are spoken globally I wanted to be inclusive of other languages. This relies on meeting the right people and for this I relied on my good friend Tatiana Saraeva who translated here into Russian language!  I am including the first seven below, with hopefully more to come soon. As ever I am…See More

Hi Justin

It has been a while since we last met. Hope you are fine and the studies are progressing well.

I have been working on a project on various methods for teaching disasters to kindergarten children since Feb. 2010. There is a section in the project that aims to introduce methods that are used in different countries for teaching disasters (such as earthquakes, floods, volcano, etc) to kindergarten children. I was wondering if this request can be posted on the edu4drrwebsite, so I can hear from other members about the experiences they have in their countries in this regard.

I would appreciate your assistance.

Regards

Hello Justin.. yeah, been a long time ne! Come to Japan again, for sure I'll be here at least till the end of October. Yep yep when you were in Japan last August I was doing the project in Indonesia. One of the activities was to introduce a disaster game to kindergarten teachers and children, and further created the adapted game into local context together with the teachers. I just heard that last week the game has started to be practiced also in another city! :) Umm.. as for my current activity, other than writing, I am now preparing a small program for discussion about climate change in a Japan-ASEAN youth exchange program. I will be the facilitator, starting from 30th October till 25th November, and the program will be held on a cruising ship ^ ^ I am so excited. Will update about it later :)

Thanks a lot for actively updating the news and studies about DRR! I think I owe you a lot for this.. :)

Justin,
I did a detailed research on cyclone risk and role of natural buffers like mangroves, casuarinas, or man made structures like dikes in reducing the risk to lives. I found mangroves playing a very strong protective role and reducving risk to human lives by more than 50%. Of course, I analysed total deaths and total human population at risk in the study area.

Hi Justin. Thanks a lot. I'm writing up my thesis at the moment so I'm coming across stuff all the time. I'll be to sure to share anything good. We are not doing so well with DRR education in Australia it seems. Lost of room for improvement. There still seems to be an overriding perception that kids can't do much. Which we all know is far from the truth! Best, BT
