The overall aim of the Aware & Resilient project was to raise the awareness of citizens, of all ages of the value and benefits of disaster preparedness and of creating community links. The main objectives were:
- informing citizens of the main pillars of disaster preparedness and additionally, the role that they can play to protect themselves and others;
- improving the link between relevant stakeholders at community level; and
- sharing, translating and adapting awareness raising tools that have been developed by individual Red Cross Societies for use in other European countries.
