We believe a tightly knit community is a powerful tool for prevention of climate-related health risks.
More than 90% of natural hazards are recognised as climate related hazards. These kinds of hazards are only going to increase in frequency. In this scenario, the current heat communication plan would just not be enough. In 2019, it was only activated 3 times, responsively.
The efforts of sensitizing to heatwaves are limited to a certain time period every year. People tend to forget when summer ends and resources for creating awareness have to be dispatched again, the next year.
We have compared multiple devices/approaches that can be used to monitor health parameters. Wi-fi signals even though are still in development can measure higher number of measurements, they are easy to use and affordable since they can work with a standard wi-fi router.
On average every euro spent for prevention before a climate related hazard, saves between 4 to 7 euros during response stage.
We designed a new role for Red Cross volunteers, as a community builder. These community builders belong to the local community. These people, with a willingness to contribute to the society through the skillsets they possess, host activities/ events for bringing the community together while creating awareness about the relevant risks.
Enabling shared journeys to save energy and upscaling enablers production.
