Seminar "Building European Communities’ Resilience and Social Capital"
on May 7 from 13:00 to 14:00
at Hanken School of Economics
The seminar consists of a presentation of forthcoming EU project, which will be launched in May 2019. The project is entitled «Builders» (Building European Communities’ Resilience and Social Capital).
By focusing on protection needs of the most vulnerable individuals, groups and communities , the project will improve the overall resilience of socially disadvantages people against natural and/or man-made hazard, and thereby strengthen the entire society. The project will study methods, tools, technologies and procedures applied by people especially susceptible to natural and/or man made hazards and/or institutions responsible for their protection in order to detect their weaknesses and strengths in mitigating risk exposures and how they prepare for, react to , overcome and learn from managing past disasters.
Based on this knowledge , the project will devise and mark pathways from the root-level resilience building in different settings to high-level policy strategies with different application levels designated for resilience building, disaster prevention and a broad enhancement of social capita.
