Natural disasters, such as massive earthquakes, localized torrential downpour, huge typhoons, and unexpected volcanic eruptions, are raging. And furthermore, reckless urban sprawl, and big cities becoming complicated have brought about the disaster of a new type. The knowledge about how to prevent a disaster and how to reduce its damage should have been accumulated in Japan which has lived with natural disasters. However, it seems that the many of them have been buried in the shade of a rapid change of society. An urgent subject imposed now on educational circles is to make a new disaster prevention education by digging oral traditions about local disasters, and employing modern scientific knowledge. We will encourage teachers and researchers to submit papers about the educational program performed in a school or by a local government and about new techniques developed in a research institute for the disaster prevention education, to this session.
