tell their experiences in natural disasters can put
their messages on the NDYS forum. As the final event of
the project, students will get together at the iEARN
Conference and Youth Summit and make an exhibition of
the maps and give oral presentations of their studies.
Through this program, students will grow as global
citizens who take actions and share their knowledge of
disaster management to local people. We expect students
to be NDYS Ambassadors to let people understand the
importance of preparedness for the next risk. We wish
that participating schools will be the local centers of
community education for disaster management. We welcome
teachers and civic volunteers to support students'
learning and activities.
