Purpose

In January 2005, 10 years from the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, the United Nations World Conference on Disaster Reduction was held in Kobe.

On this occasion, the project eNatural Disaster Youth Summitf was launched by communicating with 1,000 children from 15 countries.  It aimed to host "Natural Disaster Youth Summit 2005 in Hyogo" for handing down the lessons from the disaster and the importance of human lives.

@

In the conference, the children created a declaration statement of "Try to feel, try to learn, try to share" and made the foundation of the global disaster prevention education network

In the 21 century, classrooms in the world are connected and children can learn  the lessons of the past disasters in the world. They share the wisdom of disaster prevention of various countries and regions. The lessons are learned to protect life and to work to reduce disaster risk.

As the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, the importance of disaster prevention and mitigation of the region has been reviewed again. 

@

 In March 2015, the United Nations World Conference on Disaster Reduction was held in Sendai. In the conference, it was recognized that a better reconstruction is important in the recovery process.

@

The NDYS2016  conference will have an opportunity to present the results the final phase of the NDYS2016 project under the theme of gClimate change and Disaster Reduction, Mitigation and Reconstruction of our townh through global collaborative Active-learning utilizing ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in Niigata.

@

In addition to these activities, we have been working with the iEARN Taisho Koto group on a project dealing with the power of music on the disaster recovery process.  This work will be presented at "Kotolympic 2016 in Niigata," which is participating in The 64th Niigata City Performing Arts Festival.

The purpose of this conference is to let the children of Niigata present what they have learned through disaster reduction education and for NDYS school children to present their research about disasters in their home countries and introduce their disaster safety maps.  This will give them a chance to recognize what they have learned through making disaster safety maps and researching their local area.

In addition, they will think of some of the abnormal weather models that are happening because of climate change, then they will explores the resolution for the abnormal weather and climate change by discussing what they can do.

Also, children will suggest some ideas for healing the emotional damage of natural disasters through experiencing music exchange with Taisho Koto lovers, which makes the children understand the importance of caring.

@

The participants will notice the difference of each culture through their communication, presentation and Disaster Safety Maps during the 6 days conference. They will deepen their understanding by hearing the different point of views and experiencing different cultures.

@

On August 7, at the Niigata City Ryutopia Concert Hall, children will adopt the NDYS declaration and announce to the world, the importance of recognizing the differences of generations and cultures.

The conference aims to foster children to be aware of disaster reduction and to be a global citizen who can act spontaneously and survive in the rapidly changing society.
