On 12 October 2023, the DKKV, together with the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) and the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), organised a Parliamentary Evening at the Museum of Communication in Berlin. Expert presentations illuminated the topic of how communication can succeed in times of crisis and which aspects are necessary to prepare the population for extreme situations through successful risk communication.

The event’s varied framework programme offered guests from politics, administration, science and practice the opportunity to network and engage in professional exchange. During the parliamentary evening, the DKKV promotional awards from this and last year were also handed out. Further information on the award ceremony can be found here.
