2021 World Tsunami Awareness Day & Art For Your World Campaign Art Show by Selva Ozelli

Selva Ozelli / November 5, 2021



The World Tsunami Awareness Day is celebrated on November 5, since 2016 to promote tsunami awareness around the world and share innovative approaches to risk reduction.

A tsunami is a series of enormous waves usually caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions occurring below or near the ocean. It is one of the deadliest natural disasters. Over the past two decades, tsunamis have accounted for almost 10 percent of global economic losses from disasters. Currently, over 700 million people live in low-lying coastal areas and small islands who may be exposed to extreme sea-level events including flooding and tsunamis.

According to a recent study unexpected events such as economic crises and tsunamis can have profound implications for energy systems and climate change mitigation efforts at different levels. The Study explores the national and regional carbon emission patterns (and their drivers) for the main economic sectors in Japan between 2007 and 2015, a period shaped by the 2008 financial crisis and the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.  The study results offer a more nuanced understanding of how individual events can affect emissions at different periods and levels (national vs. regional) to inform the design of climate change mitigation strategies.


Art galleries and museums across the UK and beyond will “go green” on 5 November in a new initiative "Art for Your World" launched to mark the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, in Glasgow (COP26).

Participating art organisations are invited to turn their buildings green for the day in response to the climate summit, which is bringing world leaders and officials from 196 countries to Scotland from 31 October to 12 November in the hope of driving down carbon emissions and limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees—the goal of the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.
