Technology is increasingly transforming the cities and communities that we live in, and the way we live in them. How can we harness technology to help build our resilience to natural hazards and disasters?

Join us as we hear from members of our SMART Resilient Communities project team to explore how technology is contributing to disaster preparedness, response and recovery, how people think and feel about technology in disasters, and how disruptive technology can provide solutions for disaster risk management. Find out how schools in Te Tairāwhiti and Bay of Plenty regions are using technology to improve their communities’ resilience to earthquakes and tsunamis.
