On October 12, the exhibition “#Krisenalltag – Kommunikation in der Pandemie” (#Daily crisis business – communication during the pandemic), to which mecom contributed, ended with a Parliamentary Evening.
How does risk communication succeed in times of crisis?
Since July, an exhibition at the Museum für Kommunikation Berlin (Berlin Museum of Communication), to which we contributed together with other members of project MIRKKOMM, had been dedicated to this topic.
On October 12, the program accompanying the exhibition ended with a Parliamentary Evening in the impressive atrium of the Museum of Communication. Gudrun Menze, one of our colleagues involved in the preparation of the exhibition, was present on site.
The Parliamentary Evening was organized by the German Committee for Disaster Risk Reduction e.V. (DKKV) and the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) in cooperation with the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK). Together, they had set up an inspiring and entertaining evening.
Our highlight was a very amusing piece of impro theater on the topic of disaster management, in which the actors spontaneously “invented” the scenes upon prompts from the audience. In addition, the DKKV’s sponsorship prize was awarded, and Petra Weber, head of the resilience center in the South German district Ostalbkreis, gave impulses on the topic of “Regional resilience”.
Welcoming addresses were given by Anja Schaluschke (Director of the Museum for Communication), Andreas Hensel (President of the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment), Leon Eckert (Chairman of DKKV) and Ralph Tiesler (#BBK President).
The all-around successful evening ended with lots of networking and exchange. Our thanks go to the organizers for the great conclusion to the exhibition “#Daily crisis business – communication during the pandemic”.
