Supplement project for the further development of disaster prevention education in Indonesia
Starting from December 2015, I was able to take advantage of this big opportunity to learn about disaster education in NPO+Arts Japan. Having experienced a disaster before coming to Japan made me realize how important it is to have disaster knowledge in order to be better prepared in the future. Everyone knows that Japan is an earthquake-prone country. We can learn how to prepare by observing how Japanese society prepares and educates its citizens to respond to earthquakes. A feature of NPO+arts is Kaeru Caravan, a mitigation system for all family members. Its purpose is to encourage people to be keenly interested in acquiring a disaster education. This event has become so popular that every time it was held it draws hundreds of visitors and participants. Indonesia itself already has its own ‘localized Kaeru Caravan’ called Inisiatif Kanca Cilik (IKC Indonesia). Even though IKC Indonesia offers many programs and events, not many people are attracted to this main event. During my stay in Japan, I will try to develop a new system which aims to gain the public’s awareness of disaster mitigation through creative development. The main goal is to make IKC Indonesia more attractive so people will be more interested in the program. A good design and creative idea is the key!
