Eight and a half years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
As the number of people who experienced the disaster will diminish over time, by focusing on what measures can be made to pass on the memories and the experiences beyond generations and era, the City of Sendai is currently considering the establishment of an earthquake disaster memorial in the city center. This session will address the fundamental meaning of passing on memories and experiences of disasters, such as “What did the Great East Japan Earthquake bring to society”, “What should be passed on to the next generations” and “What are the required efforts to achieve this”.
