Mapping of Nature Risks and Disasters for Educational Purposes

Temenoujka Bandrova, Milan Konecny


The paper presents definitions of nature risks and disasters. Mapping of risk processes is discussed in the direction of educational purposes. International organizations publish information brochures about how to teach children correct behaviour and preparation for natural disasters. Questions such as "What do you do in case of an emergency" are discussed. Standards and technologies related to emergency management are considered. Some examples of maps and methods of mapping for young and older students are presented, and a proposal for the National Strategy in the field of education is created on the basis of them.
