Citizens & Civil Protection Interaction: how to reduce the “Risk Perception Action Gap” – RiskPACC’s 1st Awareness Workshop

The RiskPACC Consortium is pleased to invite you to attend the RiskPACC’s 1st Awareness Workshop!
The RiskPACC 1st Awareness Workshop Citizens & Civil Protection Interaction: how to reduce the “Risk Perception Action Gap” takes place in Brussels, Belgium, on the 27th of June 2022.

Awareness of risks and respective levels of preparedness are decisive for enhancing individual and collective disaster resilience, especially in the context of increasingly complex and interconnected risks. Across Europe, gaps can be identified in the ways Civil Protection Authorities and citizens perceive risk and identify appropriate actions. These gaps, summarized as the “Risk Perception Action Gap”, are specifically addressed within the RiskPACC project.

The workshop serves to present results of an analysis of current practices, and key aspects of the Risk Perception Action Gap, as well as approaches – including new technologies – to narrow down these gaps. The results and approaches shall be discussed with representatives of industry, end-users, citizens, solution providers, academia as well as other EU projects that are currently dealing with related topics of risk perception and behaviour.
Participants will learn about first results of RiskPACC, and at the same time enable the project to include participants’ experiences in the further course of the project (ending in August 2024).
The morning session of the Workshop will start with a welcome and a general introduction at 11.30 CET.
