Hi Justin
I noticed the following link in ADPC website.
"Mainstreaming Disaster Reduction in the Education Sectir.. in Lao PDR, Philippines and Cambodia" (April 2008).
It might be worth of uploading in the site.

Dear Justin,
I have tried to put our video on the network but still have technical problem since last month. Is it possible if I send our film to your mail address and you help us to add them?

Dear Justin,

I am pleased to participate this site. Here in Brazil, is still being born a culture of prevention. I am a professor in Brasilia and I am researching how to teach prevention of disasters on children. I plan to soon, start the Masters. Now appreciate your help.

Dear Justin
Thank you for your intereston public education in Iran. I believe we have lots of common knowledge for sharing. Public Education in Iran had been started by the establishment of International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology ( IIEES) in 1989. Public Education Department activities of IIEES from the start has been concentrated mostly on school children by inserting materials about earth, earthquakes and safety in the school textbooks by coopration of Ministry of Education, and the first book titeld " Earthquake Preparedness had been published on 1993 for third grade secondary schools and first and second grades of high schools.I think my paper on "Iran's School Earthquake Safety Initiative" which has been published by RDD Vol. 28, N0. 2, Autumn 2007 is a good explanation on what has been done on schools Safety programs in Iran so far.This paper is a joint paper by me and Professor Ashtiany , Mr. Seif and Miss. Heshmati.
Since most of the materilas have been produced for internal use so they are in Pesian but i will send some picture of our activities soon.

Best Regards
