1:00 PM

Special Interest Group event

GEOTalks is a series of informal monthly online presentations dedicated to sharing and promoting GeoEducation and Outreach in all its forms. The talks are organised by the GeoEducation, Outreach and International Development Special Interest Group (GEOID SIG) of the GSNZ.

This month's talk is:

Tsunami Hīkoi Week

with Georgia McCombe, Project Leader at East Coast LAB.

East Coast LAB (Life At the Boundary) is a collaborative programme that brings together scientists, emergency managers, experts and stakeholders across the East Coast to make it easy and exciting to learn more about the natural hazards that can affect us.

One long standing East Coast LAB initiative is Tsunami Hīkoi Week. A Tsunami Hīkoi is a walk to your tsunami safe location, and each year during the week surrounding the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami anniversary, the community is encouraged to practice their Hīkoi, as a regular reminder of exactly what to do after a long or strong earthquake.

Georgia McCombe, Project Leader for East Coast LAB will provide an overview of the East Coast LAB, the inspiration and history of Tsunami Hīkoi Week, and the future of the initiative.

This talk will be hosted online.

An access link will be emailed to GEOID members.
