                                                                   4TH INNOVATION FOR CRISIS MANAGEMENT (I4CM) EVENT

 

WHO, WHEN AND WHERE?

Organised by the DRIVER+ project and co-hosted by the Danish Red Cross, the fourth edition of the DRIVER+ Innovation for Crisis Management (I4CM) event will be organised from June 12 to 13, 2019 in Copenhagen (Denmark), at the Kosmopol Centre.

 

OBJECTIVE, FOCUS AND FORMAT

The main aim of this event is in the first place to allow local/regional Crisis Management practitioners, solution providers and policy-makers to meet and exchange on best practices and lessons learnt, while providing related projects and initiatives with an opportunity to increase their impact and to liaise with any interested stakeholders, including organisations developing similar projects in other regions of the world. The other way around, it intends to make projects in the field of Crisis Management accessible to a wider range of external stakeholders in a specific region.

This new edition will focus on volunteer management in a crisis situation, with special attention being paid to issues around organised volunteers, spontaneous volunteers and psychosocial support to volunteers. Furthermore, this edition will give the participants an opportunity to learn about the latest development regarding the organisation of the fourth DRIVER+ Trial to be organised in Eisenerz, Styria (Austria) in September 2019 and whose focus is also on Volunteer Management.

The two-day event will comprise keynote speeches, plenary discussions, interviews, dedicated workshops and hands-on sessions with trainings and roundtables. Furthermore, a marketplace will be central to the event, allowing practitioners to discover innovative Crisis Management solutions.
