The Executive Secretary of the EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement presented the Agreement to the 9th Plenary Session of the Council of Europe Steering Committee for Educational Policy and Practice held in Strasbourg on 21-23 March. He emphasised the projects carried out on prevention, preparedness and risks education. A particular focus was put on the BeSafeNet Project; a web tool for promoting risk culture among population and the Olympiad competition between secondary schools in States parties to the Agreement to be organised in April 2019. The Education Committee members were invited to propose a list of schools interested in taking part in this online competition. This initiative is part of the cross-sectoral actions of EUR-OPA to promote the mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction in sectorial policies.
