PPU Talks Target Audience


Disaster risk themes have an enormous audience potential on the continent and globe. From university level students and early career practitioners who wish to learn more and expand their knowledge about disaster risk, to established practitioners and experts who wish to sharpen their disaster risk knowledge to keep abreast of developments in the field.

Potential audience can also include government officials and NGO personnel who wish to better understand disaster risk related issues and how to address them, as well as concerned citizens and community members who seek to better understand disaster risk issues that may afflict them.

The PERIPERI U Talks platform seeks to provide opportunities to share knowledge and engage with all these potential groups. Those who are invited as Talk guest to speak on such issues should consider who they are aiming to address and engage with in their session, whether it is a general introduction for all on a particular topic, or whether they have a particular type of audience in mind.

While we foresee the majority of sessions to be hosted in English, PERIPERI Talks will seek to encourage and accommodate Talk sessions in other major African languages such as French, Portuguese, Arabic, Swahili, etc. to reach out to other audiences and provide teaching opportunities across the continent to a variety of linguistic groups.
