Event Description:

In June of 2019, a group of students and practitioners from diverse background and academic discipline joined the international field trip, "Learn from Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Crisis", to learn first hand about the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.

This 7-day intensive program included visits to various cities in the Tohoku (Northeaset) region as well as Tokyo, with meetings with leaders in local communities, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses and universities who shared valuable lessons from the disaster and the process of recovery and rebuilding efforts that continue to this day.

At this event, program participants will present their experiences and takeaways from the trip through different themes that impact disaster preparedness and community resilience. Please join us for an opportunity to learn from the group, and for an opportunity to discuss about what we can all learn from Japan.
