Date: 17 June 2017

The CARISMAND Third Citizen Summit took place on 17 June 2017 in Rome, Italy.

CARISMAND Citizens Summits are events which seek the opinion of local residents in different parts of Europe on disaster-related topics. The specific topics in focus are based upon particular disaster risks that are prevalent in the respective locations. They place at the centre of attention specific aspects that affect culturally informed disaster risk perceptions. The main purpose of each event is to collect enough quantitative and qualitative data in order for CARISMAND team to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the citizens’ reactions and opinions on the topics discussed.

The event was chaired by Prof. Noellie Brockdorff and Dr. Sandra Appleby-Arnold from the University of Malta, and Celia Callus from Nutcracker Research Ltd, UK.

The next Citizen Summit is to be held in Frankfurt, Germany, on 24 June 2017.
