Edu4DRR's Silly Timmy comic to be recognised at WCDRR

Just an update on the edu4drr comic strip. Following pilot project in Tehran and development with UNESCO Pakistan, the use of the comic as a form of novel and creative media has been recognised by the BBC, GNDR, Netherlands Red Cross and UNISDR and will be shownalong with other projects at a side event next week at the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction.

Thank you for your submission to the initiative: “Media and communication for Disaster Risk Reduction: Showcasing Innovation”.

Following extensive consideration by an independent review committee, I’m happy to say that your entry will be mentioned at our side event at the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction.

Please let us know if you or someone from your organisation will be present at the side event so that we can direct any audience interest your way on the day. The side event is on Monday 16 March, 9:00-11:00 am at the Sendai Civic Auditorium, meeting room 5, Sendai, Japan.

You can find more information about the event and the Review Committee here.

After the event, we intend to feature the selected entries on PreventionWeb, in partnership with UNISDR. Do we have your permission to post your application form and sample media on the website?

We are delighted that you share our enthusiasm for the role that media and communication can play in disaster risk management. Throughout the conference, we’ll be discussing ways that practitioners can keep in touch, learn from each other, and advance the sector. We’ll share any concrete plans that emerge.

Here are a few of my favourites:
