Project Description

On the 5th of November 2019, it was celebrated the Awareness International Day for Tsunami Risk established by the United Nations. By invitation of the Comité Português para a Comissão Oceanográfica Intergovernamental (COI/UNESCO), the Pavilhão do Conhecimento – Centro Ciência Viva and the Escola Azul have prepared a special program to draw attention to the importance of tsunami prevention and recognition and to understand the protocols to apply before and after these events. The Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL) was one of the research institutions that together with the Proteção Civil were invited to develop a series of practical activities, mainly directed to secondary school students, related to this thematic.
