What should you do in the event of an earthquake? Find out by playing a game.
125,000 copies of a CD ROM that aims to develop preventative techniques through awareness-raising amongst young people have been distributed to schools by the Lebanese Civil Defence Organization as part of the Euro-Mediterranean Programme on Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural and Man-Made Disasters (PPRD South).
This educational game was chosen on account of its interactivity. The aim of the game is to learn to manage the various dangers that threaten all citizens in their everyday lives and how to respond to accidents that can happen on the beach or on the road or in the event of earthquakes and fires. The game can also be downloaded free-of-charge online. An estimated 250,000 children will benefit from this project.
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.
