The aim of the workshop is to try to define what we (the people living within the Geopark) want to accomplish with this project, what we can expect the results to be and how we will be able to implement the project. We will try to accomplish that by answering a few questions, which can be seen here below, that will be discussed during the workshop.
1. Increase the number of information meetings, courses on natural hazards and evacuation trainings
How would you like to learn about/be informed about natural hazards and how to respond to natural hazards?
What time of the year would be best suitable for an introduction course on natural hazards?
What time of the year would be best suitable for an evacuation drill?
2. Increase the availability of information about natural hazards online
Where would you want to be able to find information online about natural hazards?
What kind of information about natural hazards would you want accessible on the Geopark website?
3. Increase the availability of information about natural hazards in brochures
Where should brochures about natural hazards be accessible for local people?
Where should brochures about natural hazards be accessible for tourists?
If you where moving into this area (the three municipalities), what kind of information would you want to get in a brochure?
Should there be a similar brochure for tourists available?
4. Teaching material on natural hazards for children
Is there a need for more teaching material about natural hazards for children?
What types of natural hazards should children be taught about?
5. Evacuation signs
Where should the “house evacuated” signs be accessible within the Geopark?
What would be the best way to insure everyone has one?
Would you like to see more road signs guiding people to evacuation spots, and how should it be implemented?
6. Emergency kit for residence within hazard areas
Do you have a pre-packed emergency bag at your home?
How would it be possible to encourage people to have a pre-packed emergency bag at their home?
If a pre-packed emergency bag would be available to buy, would you buy one?
What stakeholders (agencies and so on) should be a part of this project?
