March 18, 2016 is the first anniversary of the Sendai Framework.
The world's most wide-ranging disaster risk reduction agreement ever, it intersects with a whole host of issues, from sustainable development and women's empowerment to climate change, health and hi-tech.
To mark the anniversary, we launched a campaign using the #switch2sendai hashtag, and on Thunderclap reached more than 20 million people with our message about reducing risk and raising resilience. (Details here: www.thunderclap.it/projects/37927-switch2sendai). Many thanks to all those of you who signed up.
If you still want to take part in the #switch2sendai campaign, you can print out a flyer from this album and send us a picture of yourself holding it. We suggest that you write the name of your city and/or organization on it.
Please send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can post them here on the UNISDR Flickr account. If you tweet them, or share them on Instagram, please tag @unisdr and use #switch2sendai in the caption.
Please also make sure to use the #switch2sendai hashtag in your Sendai Framework and disaster risk reduction-related Instagram pictures, tweets or Facebook posts from now on.
Thank you for your support!
