What is our approach to the environmental risk?
Welcome!
What is your approach to environmental risks?

This survey aims to gain knowledge on citizen’s perception of risks. The results will be used to improve the prevention and management of emergencies stemming from natural hazards.
Please take a few minutes to fill in this questionnaire and spread the word! Together we can build a more resilient society.
This survey is part of the I-REACT project (www.i-react.eu), funded by the European Commission, and involving 20 European partners. I-REACT aims to aim to use social media, smartphones and wearables to improve disaster risk reduction.

The survey has been designed by researchers of ISMB in collaboration with the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology of the University of Turin and supported by UNESCO - HQ, Section on Earth Sciences and Geo-Hazards Risk Reduction.


Thank you in advance for your collaboration!
