A novel outreach and information dissemination project targeting comfortable public spaces. Advertisers have been doing this for years (eg bus stops etc), so why not the disaster preparedness community? Encouraging to see such an innovative solution.The idea needs a feasibility study to find out whether people taking public transport have the time and interest to interact with such systems? The costs may need to be revised and links with long term planning should be explored. The proposal is innovative and inclusive stimulating participation and generating interaction rather than demanding passive contribution from the public at large. In addition to its potential large impact to help understanding climate risks, it could be improved by adding an anticipative and alert role by adding an early warning function. The 5 proposed pilots are good. Unpacking the different types of climate risks and possible actions is needed for the targeted urban population and it would illustrate more concrete measures too.
The Judges felt this was an interesting concept, and that using transport hubs as a means to disseminate information and to engage people was a great idea.
Future revisions of the project could better address how the project will access relevant data and information to be used in the system. Additionally, the projected costs seem too low.
Please elaborate how the dissemination of information for community resilience can be implemented in climate vulnerable cities with little or no public transport. Would also be interesting to explore how the project can help with encouraging community wide action to deal with climate hazards.
