Reflections: disaster recovery from the heart - Stories of disaster recovery, solidarity and survival


This publication presents a narrative of the 2011 East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster, its aftermath, and the ensuing recovery process. It is based on messages of solidarity and understanding sent by students in ASPnet schools across the Asia-Pacific and intended to build hope and resilience among children and teenagers who witnessed one of the most terrifying natural disasters in modern world history. It states that the project has contributed to an increased exposure to and understanding of disaster risk reduction (DRR) education amongst participating teachers and learners in the Asia-Pacific region.

The document provides an intimate account of the Japan Solidarity Project, including stories about the solidarity message exchange, and a frank look at the impact of the solidarity message exchange on participating ASPnet schools and schools that were affected by the disaster. Much of the publication is based on interviews that were conducted in schools that participated in the Japan Solidarity Project.
