Environmental risks come in many forms. Earthquakes and floods are the best known because they are the most common. But modern society is also threatened by other risks, such as climate change, solar storms, and the hazard of impacts from outer space. While the risks from these hazards are worldwide, disasters affect local communities, and an appropriate response to them must engage local communities. World-renowned experts in these fields will meet at Bacau University in May of 2012 to discuss these hazards, and engage the local community in addressing them.
