The IGNITE Stage is a special venue where selected Global Platform participants are allowed 15 minutes to present a disaster risk reduction topic, project or initiative. Its aim is to widen the array of topics that are discussed at the Global Platform beyond those that are presented in the main sessions and events.

The Ignite stage will be open from 11:00 to 17:30 on May 21, 09:00 to 17:30 on May 22, and 09:00 to 14:30 on May 23, 2013.

Presentations are judged on their originality and applicability to current and future global DRR efforts and accepted speakers will be notified on Feb 15, 2013.
We provide a computer with PowerPoint, Windows media player and a projector. Please bring your presentation or video on a USB stick.

All presentations will be recorded on video and published on the Global Platform website and on the UNISDR YouTube channel.

Applications are now closed. We look forward to meeting you at the Global Platform.
