Mankind faces more and more natural disasters, and damage has increased drastically over the last decades, something that could have been avoided, had people been thoroughly warned and prepared.
In this context, La main à la pâte launches a new project, on the topic of Education to natural hazards. We focus on three specific hazards (volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis) as well as on one closer to the local environment (different from one school to the other).
Based on the scholar programmes of the French Education Nationale, this project, called "When the Earth rumbles", fits in the framework of Education to Sustainable Development. It also encompasses notions of Environment, Security, and Citizenship.
