The GENSAI Design is an example of this, that may solve a lot of problems happening in connection with any kind of disasters, such as earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, hurricane, snow storm, including dispute or war. We can’t control nature or settle a dispute, however we can reduce damage or victims by design. These damages are magnified by human error, wrong information and wrong behavior. In this workshop, some groups will discuss some topics of disasters after introduction of the GENSAI Design, then propose some ideas to solve some problems caused in the disaster. Download pdf
