After listening to situation at evacuation of East Japan Great Earthquake, professor Mr.Amano tell us what is important for shelter management.

According to his telling, A mission of shelter is to protect our lives. In other words, it is crucial to prevent "earthquake-related death".

For that, view of “communication and self government” is significant.
A coffee shop was installed or evacuees’ association was established to expand the circle of human’s communication.

We played shelter management simulation game [Suske-nable(Japanese pages)] based on illustration after lecture. We felt that it is important to not only preparing manual but also a community which is born there soon in case of emergency.
