Lisbon Multihazard Citizen’s Observatory
Why is this pilot important?
Due to this particular context it is very important to prepare local communitie’s and the specific groups of stakeholders defined (civil protection and other municipality services, scientific community, schools, senior universities, groups of scouts), to better respond to disasters and also demonstrate that they can play an active and decisive role in risk management in their area of residence, as long as they are properly awared to it.
The benefit will also be for Lisbon Municipality because the society involvement allows a better monitoring of risk situations.
What are we doing in this pilot?
Lisbon Pilot developed a character called Riska that became the dissemination strategy identity.
We are also working with schools through several communication actions aiming students preparedness to seismic and tsunami risk.
Local communities’ dissemination actions are being prepared, with the support of Lisbon boroughs. A specific campaign aiming the dissemination of the AGEO app through the other groups of stakeholders is being prepared.
Aiming Lisbon Multihazard Citizen’s Observatory dissemination several actions have been developed, such as tutorial videos.
Some dissemination materials were also prepared to support the work with schools.
