A connector for ‘all of society engagement’: revisiting the case of Kuroshio Town
Assoc. Prof. Kaori KITAGAWA (Department of Education, Practice and Society, Institute of Education, University College London (UCL))
This seminar reconsiders the disaster risk management (DRM) for Nankai Trough Earthquake and Tsunami undertaken in Kuroshio Town. The focus is on the notion of a ‘connector’ required in ‘all of society engagement’ approaches. Applying whole-system thinking, the seminar suggests that the meso-level of their DRM system functions as the connector, yielding relationships, learning and collaboration. eveloping connectors has an implication for integrated DRM.
