People's Pavilion

Next Seminar

What is the People’s Pavilion?

In March 2015, thousands of guests from all over the world will gather in Sendai City for the 3rd UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR).During this period, there will be events for the general public held as part of the Public Forum.It is estimated that more than 40,000 people will take part in these events, held in over 10 venues across Sendai City.Due to the geographic dispersion of these events, it was initially feared that there would not be a designated location for the conference participants and citizens to congregate.
In order to ensure a universal, accessible location for all stakeholders to gather, the People’s Pavilion will serve as a central point of the WCDRR, encouraging participation from civil society and providing a space for people from all backgrounds to interact, network and exchange information.
