education kit consists of a brochure with basic information related
to disasters and risk reduction, along with a set of tools aimed at
getting students and teachers involved in this issue, in a dynamic
and enjoyable manner.
In addition, the kit includes an educational game, “Riskland”, which refers to disaster prevention through a number of instructive messages. The game helps understand which practices may be effective for reducing the impact of disasters or which are not appropriate and, as a result, may lead to an increase in vulnerability.
This kit is intended for children between 8 and 12 years of age, as a complement to any other material that schools may already have. Its content is useful for social studies, natural sciences, studies related to human groups or foreign countries, and the interaction between people and their environment.
All material included in this kit was produced by the Secretariat for the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF- TACRO).
