Earth Manual Project
Disaster and Design: for Saving Lives
Disasters can Happen Anytime, Anywhere, to Anyone! Disaster Preparedness Begins by Communicating with Each Other. Let Us Start Now!
The “EARTH MANUAL PROJECT – Disaster and Design: for Saving Lives” was a showcase of creative and innovative practices for dealing with disaster at different stages, from preparedness education to response and relief efforts. Originating in Japan, this exhibition included examples of work from other countries where natural disasters frequently occur, such as Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. To date, the exhibition has traveled from Japan to Southeast Asia and North America, accumulating new ideas and evolving to fit local conditions with each stop.
