The Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) mounted Wednesday a search for the best practices adopted by Southeast Asian schools to provide education on disaster risk reduction to their students and local communities.
All public and private schools in the region are encouraged to submit the information on their models to email@example.com by August 10.
Winners will be presented with an award, which is named the SEAMEO-Japan Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Award , that includes a cash prize of US$1,500 and a 4-day study tour for 4-6 people in Japan.
All winning schools will be sponsored to participate in the award presentation ceremony, which will be held at the SEAMEO High Officials Meeting in November 2012 in Thailand.
The award – co-sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan, the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd – will be granted every year from now to 2014 to promote and share best practices in ESD to provide Southeast Asian schools and communities with planning strategies that reduce risks and losses caused by natural disasters.
SEAMEO is a regional intergovernmental organization established in 1965 by the governments of Southeast Asian countries to promote regional cooperation in education, science and culture.
