Our goal is not only to plan activities, fair events and produce picture books on distaster management, but also to spread awareness of the important of proper disaster management to a wider audience.
Wasend consists of Civil and Enviromental engineering students within Waseda University. As we learn about disatser management within our lectures and classes, and potentially utilise our knowledge within our future careers, Wasend aims to do our best.
And to achieve this policy, there are 2 methods that we carry out:.
○Disaster prevention education for children

○ Effective and practical education
By providing our education with not only theoretical but also experiential, we aim for a better disaster prevention education method.
