People try to avoid disasters and develop more affluent lifestyles. More than 100 years have passed since the Great Kanto Earthquake of September 1, 1923. In the past 100 years, our lives have changed dramatically, becoming more convenient and we are feeling the evolution of our society.
Many disasters have occurred in the past 100 years, always appear new lessons and challenges. However, frequently of large-scale disasters is low. Therefore, those lessons are not passed/kept affected area. As a result, there is always a tendency for damage to be experienced for the first time.
How has the experience of disasters over the past 100 years affected the evolution of society? Has the evolution of society reduced our vulnerability to disasters? Conversely, have the blind spots behind convenience created deadly situations in times of disaster?
In this session, experts in a wide field of Japan Academic Network for Disaster Reduction and JpGU will be invited as speakers to actively discuss from various perspectives whether the evolution of society over the past 100 years will be able to overcome the next disaster.
