The edu4drr site has been going for almost two years and I hope it has been of use to many of you as a resource and as a place to share information and contact colleagues in other countries as well as in your own. The site was set up by myself to facilitate dialogue and highlight good practice among those working for effective education for DRR. However as of July 2010, the site will no longer be a free service of ning but rather a fee paying site. This is being charged by the ning group and NOT
by myself. Further details about that can be found here
. The edu4drr site is not run for profit in any way, but by the same token the fee of $199 US a year is a bit steep for an individual such as myself. I am therefore asking for suggestion son how we can generate funding. Please add these to this blog and we will hopefully find a way to survive and keep our community going. Obviously it should be noted that this is a YEARLY subscription to ning and would therefore be renewable each year and funding would be required for this. Anyway, rather than wait I thought I needed to share with you as soon as possible.
