UNESCO Jakarta Organized Let’s Talk DRR - the Futures of Disaster Risk Governance in 2045
UNESCO, UN office on Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), UNDP Accelerator Lab, and U-INSPIRE Alliance are implementing a series of activities on Future Thinking on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience. UNESCO Jakarta office in collaboration with other partners organized the virtual dialogue on the Futures of Disaster Risk Governance in 2045 on 30th July 2021.
The series of activities consist of webinars, Futures Literacy Laboratory on DRR (FLL-DRR), and Let’s Talk DRR that will be organized throughout 2021. The objective of this virtual dialogue was to leverage on the collective intelligence and frontiers thinking of the youth and young professionals to challenge, create and negotiate concepts and frameworks for disaster risk reduction and resiliency in 2045. On behalf of ECOSF, President Prof. Soomro participated in the event.
Young experts were invited to share their insights and views on the discussion result based on the current issues, concerns, challenges, gaps, and future trend of the particular DRR topic. Futures Literacy and Foresight experts engaged in the discussion with emphasis on the absence of hierarchy of expertise: nobody has been to the future, which is as frightening as liberating for all of us.
