Summer School Disaster Risk Reduction

The German Committee for Disaster Reduction

Trier University of Applied Sciences Environmental Campus Birkenfeld

Are you keen on learning more about Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)? Are you interested in working in the field of disaster risk management and/or prevention?

Disasters are complex phenomena which increasingly tackle our daily lives now and in the future. Thus, it becomes more and more important to have well-informed and trained people to mitigate the social, infrastructural, and economic challenges due to disaster risk.

During a one-week course organized by the German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV) and the Environmental Campus of UAS Trier you will learn the basics of risk management and risk prevention as well as explore the topic in real life on different field trips, as to the Ahr Valley or to the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) in Bonn. The Summer School does not only focus on theory but also on practical input in order to apply Disaster Risk Reduction.

Applications should be submitted by April 1st 2023 to summerschool@umwelt-campus.de
