A public session "Education for disaster-prevention and community-restoration" has been held in the JpGU meetings in 2012, 2013, and 2014. The meeting of this year is due to hold "Comprehensive disaster prevention education" as one of the regular sessions. Although the type of this session differs from the previous ones, the goal of our session is the same. The necessity to reconstruct disaster prevention education has been argued by many people after Great East Japan Earthquake (March 11, 2011). For example, one of the advisory committees of the Ministry of Education submitted a report that the contents of disaster prevention education have to be rearranged systematically. However, the educational curriculums shown in the report as examples seem to lead people to have passive behavior to disaster. The comprehensive disaster prevention education includes more subjects than those referred to in the report. In this paper, the author shows a new concept of the disaster prevention education, and suggests the necessity to cultivate more people facing disaster positively.
