|・Now in its fourth year, the BOUSAI Seminar is led by students from nine high schools from all over the country, and regular meetings are held every month. While sharing information on each high school's disaster prevention efforts and research on the Great Kanto Earthquake, they discuss what needs to be done to prepare now in anticipation of a large-scale disaster that will occur in the near future. By understanding the differences between each region and making the research conducted by each high school their own, they will connect disaster-stricken areas with non-disaster areas, pass on the experience of disasters, and think about how to protect lives.

On September 18th from 10:30 to 12:00 at the Yokohama National University Educational and Cultural Hall, we held a presentation on each school's past disaster prevention efforts via ZOOM.
Participating high schools are Fukushima Prefectural Fukushima High School, Aichi Prefectural Obu High School, Nada High School (ASUPA Youth Earthquake Storyteller), Kobe Tokiwa Girls' High School (ASUPA Youth Earthquake Storyteller), Ehime Prefectural Yawatahama High School, and Ehime Prefectural High School. A total of 6 schools including Prefectural Uwajima Higashi High School.
Each school's presentation lasted about 4 minutes, but it was well organized and fun to watch. In particular, Yawatahama High School sang a parody of Kuma-san in the forest to raise awareness about disaster prevention, which was very interesting.
After the presentation, in order to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great Kanto Earthquake, we asked the students to collect newspaper articles from the time and how they were written in newspapers in the prefectures and cities where each school was located, and we talked about the newspapers. .
We made some interesting discoveries, such as the fact that there were fake articles in the newspapers of that time, and we also had a group that discussed how to respond to fake news in this day and age.
I was impressed by how many newspaper articles I had collected so far, but I was even more moved by the thoughts of the students and teachers.
I had a valuable experience working with the visitors on the day to think about how to respond to the Nankai Trough earthquake that is likely to occur in the near future, how to rebuild in advance, and how to do what we can do on a daily basis.
We deeply apologize for discontinuing the broadcast on YouTube due to a problem.
We will also edit the video and repost it. looking forward to!
