On October 13th, on the occasion of the international day for natural disaster risk reduction (International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction), an absolute novelty of this 2023 edition will be the distribution in all lower secondary schools of the comic “The decisive moment”: the new generations will thus be involved, making the topics of safety and prevention accessible to all. 

An exciting initiative to educate the future about natural risk management!

Neither "The Decisive Moment four kids find themselves in the middle of an earthquake, a flood, a tsunami and a forest fire, trying to deal with the consequences. At their age, they will find themselves having to make decisive choices to save themselves and others against a seemingly invincible enemy, the Risk Equation."

Inside the comic, positioned at strategic points in the story, gods appear QR code through which you access video linked to the individual risks faced by the protagonists.

INGV”, highlights the President Carlo Doglioni stated, "is the research body involved in the study, monitoring and surveillance of earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions, and is an operational structure of the National Civil Protection System, sharing data in real time, as a reference point for information on events, not only in emergency situations. 

Cultivating memory is fundamental as the first prevention activity, because the permanent conflict with oblivion leads to lowering our guard towards the risks that nature places before us. Knowledge and prevention activities make citizens aware and the first actors in reducing these risksi ".
