National Civil Protection Week 2021

Settimana Nazionale della Protezione Civile / 2021

From 10 to 16 October, the third edition of the National Civil Protection Week will take place. The week has been established in 2019 on the International Day for Natural Disaster Risk Reduction, which is celebrated every year on October 13.

The objective of the Week is to raise awareness among citizens on civil protection issues, for a conscious approach to the territory, considering also the new global challenges posed by climate change. A conscious citizen is a person capable of choosing, adopting a correct behavior for risk reduction and environmental protection.

There will be many events both in presence and online, involving the world of institutions and scientific research, economy and production activities, citizens and civil protection volunteers.
