A new approach to a more risk-aware and resilient society
When disaster strikes, whether it’s an earthquake or a terrorist attack, communities come together to respond and cope. Citizens play a big role at the grassroots level. The EU-funded ENGAGE project will explore how individuals and local practices can interrelate effectively with planned preparedness and response, practitioners and technology. By studying the current strategies, methods, tools and practices, the project will combine and extend these to create innovative solutions to disaster management. Led by a consortium of government officials, first responders, NGOs, SMEs, industries, academia and citizen associations, the project will use empirical data on individual and collective contributions to societal resilience. It will also consider the contextual aspects such as socioeconomic conditions, digital literacy, culture, gender, social capital, trust and diversity.
