The world is changing fast and people can do nothing but adapt. As it continues to pose different disasters on us, we should be well-equipped not just with highly-technological equipment but most especially with knowledge. Everyone is responsible to do their part in spreading proper information regarding disasters and how to deal with them.One important thing that we must consider is disaster risk reduction—we must think of ways on how to prevent huge impacts of such natural disasters; one way, for example, is proper environmental/urban planning.
In line with this, we would like to inform you that the United Architects of the Philippines Student Auxiliary (UAPSA),in cooperation withSLIVERS Magazine, organized the "SPACE 2" nationwide seminar series entitled,"Life on the Edge: Living with the Risks of Disasters" with the guest speaker, Dr. Nathaniel von Einsiedel.
