The Educen Handbook on Culture & Urban Disasters

EDUCEN stands for European Disasters in Urban Centers: a Culture Expert Network. A key idea of EDUCEN is that culture and cultural diversity are not just a challenge creating barriers, but reservoirs of assets that communities, disaster managers, and city managers have available to them to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, cope with and adapt to disaster risks– cognitively and practically. The EDUCEN project has built on existing European networks in order to support learning and knowledge sharing with the aim of making cities more resilient to disasters, better able to prevent, respond, and recover.
