Basketball for IDDR 2013

This year the focus of the International Day for Disaster Reduction (13 October) is on some one billion people around the world who live with some form of disability. Representing one-fifth of the world's population, persons living with disabilities have unique contributions, often overlooked, to help reduce the risk of disasters and build resilient societies and communities.

Partnering with local organizations and the City of Geneva, UNISDR will be observing the International Day for Disaster Reduction by organizing a friendly basketball event for the public. A professional team of persons living with a disability, the Aigles de Meyrin, will also be giving a demonstration. Children are welcome to participate.

Date: Sunday, 20 October 2013
Time: 1400-1700
Venue: Gym of the International School of Geneva - Campus of Nations 11, Route des Morillons, Grand-Saconnex
