Natural Disaster Youth Summit

We are all living in the age of pandemic.

This is not someone's problem, but the problem of ourselves and all human.

To protect ourselves from diseases such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, landslides, tsunamis, droughts, we need to add COVID-19 as well.

Let’s share our ideas and learn how to protect ourselves from disasters in NDYS project.

This is a project in which children will learn the importance of human lives and how to reduce disaster impacts such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, landslides, tsunamis, droughts and diseases such as COVID-19 through the communication and collaboration with global friends.

Theme 2020-2021: 'Living in the age of pandemic. Share our ideas to survive.' 

NDYS was first organized in Hyogo in May 2004 and started from September 2004, commemorating 10th year of great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake, Japan in 1995. We learned the importance of human lives and preparedness for disasters.
