The purpose of this guideline is to provide guidance to Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies on effectively engaging in informal Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) educational initiatives. This publication is meant, in relation to DRR and education, to promote relevant initiatives in the region, identify the current roles and responsibilities of National Society at different levels, and encourage the promotion of effective child and youth-centered DRR educational activities. Adult involvement with informal DRR education initiatives can also be encouraged by appropriately adapting guideline content. Informal educational activities can also be used in support of formal activities, such as promoting school safety campaigns.
