Lessons Nerds Unite! Crossing Boundaries to Learn from Disaster

Tue. 1:30 to 3:00 p.m., Centennial F

Capturing and sharing lessons from emergency management is a worldwide challenge, and capturing them across sectors, such as community, business, health, education, and government is even more difficult. Luckily there is an informal global network of passionate "lessons nerds." This group not only spans the hemispheres, but also crosses the boundaries of governments, private industry, and nonprofits. This session will share the ways in which exchanging internal successes, challenges, and tools can result in approaches that actually turn “lessons learned” into “lessons acted upon and implemented.”
