‘Save the Life’ 2015 has been launched to respond to the climate change impacts in the Region
The different nature of disasters and industrial accidents requires an implementation of professional experience, appropriate technology and intensified trans-border interaction. In the most cases they affect humans, environment and global economy. Climate change is already happening: 900 extreme events were registered across the world in 2013 and South-East Europe felt nearly all types of natural disasters in the last years.
'Save the Life' is the first science-to-business (S2B), business-to-government (B2G) and business-to-business (B2B) event in Bulgaria organized by Via Expo concerning the prevention, preparedness and reactions, damage recovery, etc. Running from 11th to 13th March in Sofia, Bulgaria, it will provide exhibitors and attendees with opportunities to get update marketing information, to display their products to professional audience and to strengthen the partnerships among the private and public sector.
Keynote speakers from Switzerland, Germany, UK and Japan, countries with rich experience on disaster issues, will present policies, trends and "learned lessons".
‘Resilient Citizen - remarks for preparing for risks and crisis on an individual level’ – is the topic of the speech of Mr. Herbert Koch from the International Association of Risk and Crisis Communication, an event partner. He will pay attention to the role of citizen engagement and behavior change which are making cities resilient.
