UCL IRDR 11th Annual Conference: Why Warnings Matter, and the UCL Warning Research Centre Launch

The UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction welcome researchers, students, practitioners, policymakers, the media and the general public to a day of thought-provoking discussions on 23 June 2021. 

Why do warnings matter, and how we can do better at warnings both prior and during crises for all hazard types? This thought-provoking event, with a keynote by UNDRR's Mami Mizutori, will also launch the new UCL Warning Research Centre. There will be two panels exploring  'Warning Systems – exceptional versus expected events’ with speakers Mickey Glanz (University of Colorado), Daniel Straub (Technical University of Munich) and Rebekah Yore (UCL IRDR), and 'Warnings for organisations’ with Catia Guimares (InterContinental Hotels Group), Andy Marshall (AstraZeneca), and Emily Hough (Crisis Response Journal). There will an ‘In Conversation’ led by renowned journalist Andrew Revkin with Oliver Morgan (WHO) and Gail Carson (GOARN).
