2007/2/3 Message from the Chairman of the NDYS committee

Commemorative Tree Planting as the reminder of the Great Hanshin- Awaji Earthquake

Hyogo, Japan

 

The third world’s NDYS conference with children from all over the world is being planned for May 2007 in Aichi, Japan that is the region where the so named ”Tokai Earthquake” or some sort of huge scale disaster is forecasted to occur at any moment in the near future. 

In preparation for the conference, school children of the region are now in the process of creating “Disaster Safety Map” using internet communication, through which they are to learn and to think over what they can do to alleviate the effects of unavoidable natural disasters if and when they occur. Thus it is our hope that they may be able to make some contribution in future to improve the vulnerability of their society under such situation.

007/1/10 NDYS Teacher's Message From Slovakia

Slovakia

iEARN IN ACTION # 204 ** News Flashes ** January 5

"I couldn't imagine it would be possible to communicate with all the World and to know how teachers are teaching in other countries, which are faraway from us. The culture is different, habits, customs, we have known about it, but about these problems of disasters, we had never heard before. To get more information and to be educated more -- let me say again that's GREAT!!!"
