Is ‘education in emergencies’ still a relevant term? Why or why not?

--SvenAERTS 09:40, 22 April 2014 (UTC) Yes, because of the Global Climate Destabilization, the number of emergencies will increase. Using the tools by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change it can be predicted where will most likely occur punctual or long lasting destabilizing effects, where regular education could be very much supported by emergency type of educations. An OLPC mobile school deployment where XO's carry all the books for a kid's education, including books on how to make a water filter, how to make some money by e.g. making soap, but also basic hygiene books on why it is important to wash hands, books on cholera or diarhea and other easily preventable diseases. The fact that the XO has is solar powered, has wifi ability might proof valuable too.
