As part of the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade’s New Colombo Plan (NCP), the Research School of Earth Sciences received funding to run a 6-unit course in partnership with the University of Tokyo — including 5 places for students from the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science.

“Understanding Geological Hazards” was an introduction to the physical processes that underpin geological hazards and their impact on the peoples and economies of the Indo-Pacific region.

Information sessions were held at ANU to provide students with the scientific and social context of their upcoming visit to the University of Tokyo, before embarking on a two-week trip during the Semester 2 teaching break (September 2nd-16th 2018).
