Building on their Summer 2013 article in Green Teacher, David Selby and Fumiyo Kagawa of Sustainability Frontiers will map out the curriculum, learning and teaching implications of preparing children and youth for an increasingly disaster-prone world. They will present practical ideas and case study vignettes of noteworthy disaster risk reduction (DRR) school and school-in-community practice characterized by child/youth participation and leadership. They will indicate ways in which schools can evolve into DRR learning organizations at the hub of a local DRR learning community. They will also explore the interface between environmental education and disaster risk reduction education.
