Expert meeting - Brno
I would like to invite you to take part in the Seminar on public awareness-raising in the event of major disasters which will be held from 18 until 20 February 2009 in the Hotel Continental in Brno, Czech Republic.
The aim of the seminar is to initiate discussion on the awareness-raising of the EU citizens in the field of civil protection and how to enhance their knowledge on prevention in the event of emergencies. Discussion will be held in three conceptual streams:
· Working Group 1 - Training of diplomatic personnel in the field of civil protection;
· Working Group 2 - Public information and education aimed at the EU population; and
· Working Group 3 - Awareness raising as regards prevention measures and security of rescue personnel.
The draft agenda of the seminar, discussion paper, practical information, registration form and instructions for on-line registration are enclosed. I would like to ask you to register no later than 26 January 2009.
