Train-the-Trainer Programme
15/10/2015
Asia-Pacific Region suffers the highest number of disasters across the globe. As Hong Kong is a key member in the region and one of the most densely populated cities in the world, both its public health and education sectors should play pivotal roles in disaster preparedness and response.   The Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC) and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) jointly organised the Train-the-Trainer Programme on Disaster Preparedness and Response for Secondary School Teachers. The programme aims to enhance community resilience and promote disaster awareness in Hong Kong by strengthening the secondary school Liberal Studies curriculum.
