CARISMAND 2017 cycle of public events continued with a Fourth Citizen Summit held in Frankfurt on 24 June 2017.
Each Citizen Summit deals with a number of specific topics related to different types of disasters and places at the centre of attention particular aspects that affect culturally informed disaster risk perceptions. During each event quantitative and qualitative data is also collected which will allow the CARISMAND team to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the citizens’ reactions and opinions on the topics discussed.
In 2017 CARISMAND project has reached to the Third and Fourth Citizen Summits. The Third Citizen Summit was held on 17 June 2017 in Rome and gathered 106 local residents around topics of crucial importance in crisis situations.
A week later, the Fourth Citizen Summit invited people in Frankfurt to share their experience and opinion on issues of disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Following the format of the previous Citizen Summits, the event combined presentations with real-time voting system to receive instant responses from the audience, and also engaged the attendees in group discussions focused on particular cases of disaster situations.
In the end of the day participants were informed on the results of their voting, and could compare them with the answers received in previous Citizen Summits. A total of 109 citizens took part in the Frankfurt Summit.
