The role of social media in emergency response and post-disaster recovery
30 participants, including Faculty members and undergraduate students from the School of Civil Engineering from la Universidad de Valparaiso in Chile and practitioners from Colombia, attended the online talk entitled: 'The role of social media in emergency response and post-disaster recovery'. In this lecture, we discussed the role of social media in emergency response in the case studies of the 2020 earthquake in Zagreb and the 2020 Agean sea earthquake. The role of social media in the evaluation of the post-disaster recovery was based on the cases of the 10th anniversary of the earthquake in L'Aquila (Italy) and the Maule earthquake (Chile). The activity was organised by the Director of the school Professor Alejandro Morales and had a duration of 50 minutes.
