Natural Disaster Youth Summit

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

In recent years, it has been pointed out that extreme abnormal weather caused by climate change may be linked to an increase in large-scale natural disasters. Natural disasters such as heavy rain and floods are increasing in many parts of the world, and they become major obstacles not only to people's lives but also to sustainable development. To take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts is an urgent global issue.
