The initiative

This initiative is the idea of the regional government of Lombardy, Regione Lombardia (Department for the Territory and Civil Protection), to innovate its processes for diffusing a culture of civil protection. Working in partnership with the Foundation, together we have created a new open educational resource for people starting out as volunteers, as well as giving indications to everybody on how to behave in an emergency and to listing the main risks in their local area. Course contents can be accessed from the online learning platform implemented by Regione Lombardy. The course is split into seven modules, it includes many interviews with key Civil Protection people, and helps users gain an understanding of all the functions involved in volunteering. Members of the public receive an online badge for each completed module, designed for inclusion in their CVs.
