Details of the Initiative
The Surugadai Volunteer Center has been holding Lectures on Disaster Relief Volunteering twice a year since 2005, based on the basic agreement on cooperation with Chiyoda Ward in the event of a large-scale disaster. The purpose of this course is to train student volunteers to ensure a cooperative system between Chiyoda Ward and the university in the event of a disaster. In this course, you will receive lectures and training provided by experts in firefighting practices and volunteers, disaster simulation experience at the Honjo Disaster Prevention Hall, advanced lifesaving skill course, and other practices. Those who complete the three-day curriculum will receive a safety leader certificate and an advanced lifesaving skills certificate.
In addition, Disaster Prevention Workshops have been held twice a year since fiscal 2014 to raise awareness of disaster prevention among students and faculty members. This is a workshop where you learn how to protect yourself from natural disasters such as wind and flood damage and earthquake disasters through lectures and think about your own evacuation plan with other students assuming a natural disaster.
We will continue to hold seminars to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to natural disasters and climate-related disasters in order to build sustainable communities.
