Dear fellow bloggers,
this morning I have been to a conference in Geneva of Brigitte Leoni of the international Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR).
ISDR focuses on the prevention of the disasters, that means on education, awareness raising, building built according to the security regulations, etc.
During her presentation, she showed us a very interesting video who gave us a practical example on how education, espceially in the schools, could save lifes. The video was about Tilly Smith, a young British student that in december 2004 was in Thailandia with her parents for holidays. She recognized, thanks to a lecture she had at school some weeks before her holidays, the signs of the Tsunami and managed to give the allarm and to save her family plus other people that were on the beach.
Please watch it, and let me know what u think.
