We thank all participants for joining us in Vienna and contributing to this event!



In May 2009 the ARC- TeamCP project team organised an experts workshop on public participation in civil protection.

30 experts from all over Europe participated at this 2-day event taking place at the ARC Headquarters. The main topics were motivation for self protection and best practice models on involving citizens in civil protection - planning, managing as well as training.
