UCL Creating Effective Warnings For All Conference


11. September 2023 - 13. September 2023    


UCL Institute of Child Health
30 Guilford Street, London


From 11 – 13 September 2023 there will be the UCL Warning Research Centre’s Creating Effective Warnings for All’ Conference at the UCL Institute of Child Health in London.

This conference aims to provide an opportunity to break down silos between stakeholders, sectors, hazard types, geographies, and technologies used in warnings to generate better understanding and more effective warnings in the future, for all. Held at UCL, one the world’s leading research institutions, this conference offers research knowledge and skills from within academia, alongside lessons from the many stakeholders we work with, to help explore not just the creation and implementation of warnings, but how they can be effective, inclusive, sustainable and people-centred. Quality research, that goes beyond a single case study and/or hazard, and provides evidence-based solutions can provide valuable insights. In addition, we aim to help bridge research, action, and policy to help support the Early Warnings For All initiative alongside UN Sendai Target G, and the International pandemic agreement (WHO CA+).

The international conference will take place over three days and will focus on effective warnings. It will involve a diverse group of stakeholders from various regions and will have both in-person and virtual components. It includes:

  • Scenario events for delegates to partake in and learn in person the challenges and potential solutions for effective warnings.
  • Stakeholder mapping / mind mapping and analysis as part of ‘problem based sessions’.
  • Artists / performative events.
  • A range of discursive events including: Games, Campfires, Birds of a Feather, storytelling, and ‘Solution Rooms’.
  • Other, more standard conference-style events (e.g. focus groups, workshops)
