In the last decades health and environmental education has contributed to the significant improvement of life conditions as well an increase in its duration.
We do believe we should also aim at a seismic education: our homes, offices, schools, hospitals can be built or strengthened in order to better respond to a seismic event, in order to reduce, if not eliminate, the risk of damages and collapses.
The Eucentre Foundation aims at increasing, on the one hand, citizens’ awareness of the seismic hazard level of where they live and work; on the other hand, their knowledge of availability of methods and tools capable of improving the resilience of the buildings, in the belief that prevention is the only strategy to limit damage and loss.
