Risk culture in different countries: How can we learn from each other to reach a more positive risk culture?

Different cultures have different risk cultures, which encompass how people deal with risks. In this workshop, these international risk cultures are compared to exchange knowledge and find new learnings. These speakers will not only look for exchange with each other, but also with the audience:
  • Ronja Winkhardt-Enz (German Committee for Disaster Reduction, Research Associate)
  • Reimund Schwarze (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research − UFZ, Head of the Department of Climate Economics at UFZ)
  • Irina Rafliana (German Institute of Development and Sustainability & University of Bonn, PhD Researcher/ Research Associate)
  • Roland Nussbaum (French Association for Disaster Risk Reduction – Natural and Technological (AFPCNT), Member of the Bureau)
  • Sophie Guibault (Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction, Director of Partnerships)

Risk culture in France and Canada

Two examples of international risk culture, coming from France and Canada: Roland Nussbaum explains more about the risk culture in France. The Project “SKarabée” teaches risk culture to teenagers, while other target mainly older people. Improving risk culture is the main goal here, including practical exercises to complete a global approach to risk culture.

Sophie Guibault gives some insights about risk culture in Candian context. The ICLR is an multi-disciplinary disaster risk reduction research institute affiliated with Western University. “Risk culture in Canada is a multi-level question”, explains Guibault, to strengthen resilience, by empowering risk reduction by communities and building owners, by climate resilient new buildings and infrastructure and by building back better following a severe loss.
