I joined a social network - Coalition for Global School Safety & Disaster Prevention Education and learned of the various initiatives around the world in promoting disaster awareness to the public especailly in schools through the world wide web. I found interesting videos created by No Strings, a group of puppeteers who use colorful and engaging adventure films to teach life-saving messages to children.
Here is the first video on Tsunami. The story centers on Badu, a likeable but lazy villager who teaches by negative example and a Little Girl who is aware of natural hazards and disasters and their signs and effects. Watch this video with your kids as this is really very informative.
