Train-the-Trainer Programme on Disaster Preparedness and Response for Hong Kong Secondary School Teachers

Train-the-Trainer Programme on Disaster Preparedness and Response for Hong Kong Secondary School Teachers

Asia-Pacific region suffers the highest number of disasters across the globe. As Hong Kong is a key member in the region, both its public health and education sectors should play pivotal roles in disaster preparedness and response.

 

HKJCDPRI and the Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC) jointly organise short courses for secondary school teachers, aiming at supporting the secondary school Liberal Studies curriculum.

 

Courses will be delivered by speakers with rich experience in frontline disaster response and professional teaching, who will discuss recent issues related to global health and disaster, analyse the threats Hong Kong is exposed to and expound the role Hong Kong can play in international disaster risk reduction.

 

Relevant topics of the programme include:

  • Are We Prepared for the Next Epidemic?
  • Urban Threat of Infectious Diseases
  • Relationship between Disasters and Public Health from a Hong Kong Perspective
  • Climate Change and Human Health
  • Responding to Climate Change - from Local to Global Cooperation
