From 9-11 December, the 2015 Science & Creativity Annual Conference, hosted by the Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Creativity (KOFAC), was held in Seoul, Korea.
On 10 December, Prof. Yuichi Ono made a presentation titled “Social Influence of Risk Communication after Natural Hazards,” within the Special Session “The Role of Scientists and Global Cooperation in Risk Communication.” Although the importance of risk communication before, during and after disasters
is beginning to be recognized globally, the mechanism needs to be developed. IRIDeS will continue to consider better risk communication through the media, etc., focusing on early warning systems and evacuation.
