Short-term Multi-Hazards summer school - Tohoku University

Good Morning,

I wanted to share information about a summer school that might be interesting for students you work with.  

The 7th APRU Multi-Hazards Summer School will be held on July 22-25, 2019 at Tohoku University in collaboration with the Association of East Asian Research Universities. This year's theme is supporting the interface between science and policy for decision making in disaster risk reduction. The school consists of lectures, site-visits and group-based problem solving.

Students at the undergrad and graduate level interested in Disaster Risk Reduction and management are welcome to join this event.

Find out more details about the summer school and APRU-IRIDeS Multi-Program here and check out the attached flyer.

Program cost and funding

No registration fee required, though participants are responsible for their own accommodations, transportations, and other necessary expenses.

Go Global is happy to support two students from UBC nominated by their faculty to receive a $1,000 Go Global award to assist with off-setting travel costs.

Nominated students are required to pay a $415 Go Global fee, and meet complete the Student Safety Abroad Registry.


If you have any students you wish to nominate please email with their name and student number by April 25, 2019.

All the best,


Laurinda Tracey
