Beyond School Books - Podcast by UNICEF with one of our members!

The Third Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction – a forum that brings together stakeholders and experts committed to reducing disaster risk worldwide – gathered this week in Geneva. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Invest Today for a Safer Tomorrow - Increase Investment in Local Actions’.

In anticipation, UNICEF Radio moderator Amy Costello discussed the importance of education in protecting children and communities with Ben Wisner, a research fellow at Oberlin College and University College London, and Marla Petal, the co-founder of Risk Red, an organization working to increase the effectiveness of disaster risk reduction education.
