Dear Steve,

Not bad replying to your message nearly three years on, my apologies I stopped using this site and so didn't know you had messaged me. 

I hope that you had success in your program, your work sounded very interesting. I no longer work in youth resilience but it is always good to hear of the good work people are doing. 

Regards 

Jessica

Hi Steve,

 I note with interest that Exercise Watermark is coming up in March and last time we spoke you were about to embark on educational projects in Lincolnshire. My research is centred around behavioural change in terms of Disaster Risk Reduction, and I am particularly interested in self-efficacy, which is essentially self-belief in ones own ability to make a difference.

 

I would like to make contact with any schools that have taken to emergency preparedness with a view to examining what (if any) impact they have had on preparedness in the wider community. 

 

I would also like to interview key personnel in your field (including yourself) about the impact that the floods in 2007 had on the community in Lincolnshire and whether this has since waned and any reasons for this.

 

Anyway, I hope you can get back to me soon and we can arrange something useful. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

Justin

Using paired teaching for earthquake education in schools

How to communicate better to stop disasters occurring

Posted by Justin Sharpe on May 15, 2017 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

I have read an interesting blog written by Robert Glasser from UNISDR, with the WCDRR coming up in Cancun. I agree with many of the points made, and would like to see more culturally appropriate community/family led and oriented DRR communication…
