Many issues of disaster prevention now need to be considered at a global

In recent years, it has been pointed out that extreme abnormal weather caused by climate change may be linked to an increase in large-scale natural disasters. Natural disasters such as heavy rain, floods and wildfires are increasing in many parts of the world, and they become major obstacles not only to people's lives, but also sustainable development. To take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts is an urgent global issue.
Theme: Climate Change and Disaster Reduction , Mitigation, and Reconstruction
~ Abnormal weather : Solve the problem by global collaboration and Save
our lives! ~ By experiencing various disasters, different knowledge and information to reduce their impact are accumulated in local communities. By sharing this knowledge and information, we can prepare against future disasters and take actions to combat climate change and its impacts. Let us maintain continuous efforts and transfer these efforts to the next generation. Our ultimate goal is to enhance awareness of the impact of natural disasters on families, schools and local communities around the world through young people's actions. NDYS will build a global disaster management education network utilizing Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Let us communicate with each other and contribute to the healthier and safer planet. As the final event of the NDYS2023-2024, we would like to have NDYS presentation
