Pandemic Outbreak (public engagement event)

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

I run a public engagement session on Pandemics for 15-20 Swiss school children aged between 10-14 years on 11th July 2019. In this session I gave a talk, showes a short video simulation of an outbreak starting in Paris and spreading globally, and I designed four short interactive exercises aiming at getting children to discuss together who should get (limited resources, like) medicines in an outbreak and why they should be prioritised, what effects quarantine and isolation may have on them and their friends and family, what might happen in case of school and work closures to them and their family and other social impacts of some of the measures currently envisaged.
