The Disaster Youth Summit (NDYS) has continued the ‘NDYS-KOBE, High School Project’ from last year. This project has been implemented by high school students in Kobe and the nearby areas.

The students do research on disaster risk reduction and collaborate with other high school students by sharing what they have studied. The theme of the project this year is ‘Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction of Our Town’ Delegates of the project last year participated in and made presentations at the 6th Natural Disaster Youth Summit in Turkey in August 2010. Through the conference, they learned from the presentations of other schools from around the world. The reports of the NDYS in Turkey and the Disaster Safety Map Exhibition from 13 countries and regions will be introduced.

In addition, this year’s new student members will present their research findings on their local area’s disaster preparedness.
