CALL FOR APPLICATION!
YOUTH COMPETITION FOR DISASTER EDUCATION

Why youth competition now?
Indonesia and Japan are both countries where we have a lot of natural disasters. Especially after the March-11-earthquake in 2011, more people have become aware that there are values and lessons we can learn from the crisis in order to be more prepared for the disasters in the future.
The youth, are the agents of change that determine what the future will be. In Indonesia, the wave of young people’s participation in giving social contribution is growing fast in various issue-areas, including disaster as one of the major problem faced by Indonesia, today.
Seeing this spirit and momentum of fast-growing youth participations, The Japan Foundation, Jakarta and Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) encourage Indonesian youth proactive involvement on disaster reconstruction and to convey knowledge on education for disaster prevention through a competition in showing past activities as well as proposing what you can build as improved or new projects for disaster education. Thus here we announce the call for application for the Youth Competition for Disaster Education.
What have been your past activities in disaster and education? How do you improve your activities? Are you motivated enough to learn from Japanese experiences? –If you are ready to answer to these questions, please read the following details, and prepare for the application!
The 24 winners (or six organizations/groups) will be awarded as the part of the Kizuna (Bond) Project in February and March 2013 to participate in the 12-days of study trip to Japan and to contribute in experiencing the reconstruction efforts of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
