The Need of NDYS 

.The Need of Disaster Reduction Education 

Many Natural Disasters have occurred in the world. People in the place disaster occurs take large damages. But people don’t have much awareness to take measures before disasters (disaster prevention). Reduction

This is significant issue for disaster management. Disaster Reduction Education for students is one of solutions. Education can let students take measures not only now but also in the future.



2.The Need of International Exchange Learning  

The main objective of international exchange learning is the understanding of different culture. Therefore, many people have thought that international exchange learning is just to show culture to each other. But the important objective of international exchange is raise awareness that human beings is one of global citizen through understanding different culture and people in different area. 

Globalization is going off. Many problems can not be solved domestically. So people who have much internationalism are needed. International exchange learning is important for it.

Students made declaration statement which showed “Regarding today, March 28th as the starting point to consider disaster, we will continue working on the study with the words, ”Try to feel, try to learn, try to share” in our mind.”. They try to continue to take action in activities in various area and disaster relief activities with cooperation through exchanging information making use of ICT. Understanding their thought, NDYS 2006 will start in September 2005 and the final meeting will be held in January 2006 that the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake occurred in the month.

Schools can participate every year but students can’t. School is recognized as school which focuses on international exchange and disaster reduction by community. Participation of different students leads to participation of many students. Recognition community has is very important because theme of this project is that school is core facility of community.
