Paré pas Paré project: Raising awareness among the general public

The Paré pas Paré project is present at public events all over the island. The goal  is to meet Reunion’s population and raise their awareness about the risks of natural disaster risks in a fun way. To do this, specially-trained volunteers run stands with educational games about natural hazards that are tailored to Reunion’s population. 

People sensitized during public events in 2020

In the face of the Covid-19 epidemic, awareness activities have been slowed down.

In order to resume their activities while respecting the barrier measures, the project team worked on the animation strategy and adapted its games for the general public.

Also, in order to make the youngest people aware of Covid-19 and the barrier measures, a new Covid-19 stand was created and tested during the school vacations. From now on integrated in the Paré pas Paré project, this new activity will be proposed at each event.
