Wednesday, 26 October at 16:00 – 17:30 hours (UTC +7)


Resilient recovery requires community and family wellbeing, functioning services and safe structures. Schools have potential to become a hub of ensuring the resilience of the surrounding communities. The Resilient School-Hubs Project combines research methodologies from psychology, social science, and environmental, structural and infrastructure engineering to aid post-disaster recovery.


The special session is to promote and disseminate initial findings from the Resilient School-Hubs Project, to foster the school-based resilient recovery of the rural areas affected by the 2018’s earthquake, tsunami and liquefaction disaster in the Central Sulawesi. It is the UK-Indonesia collaboration project between EPICentre University College London, TDMRC Universitas Syiah Kuala, and Universitas Tadulako funded by the UKRI GCRF Equitable Resilience.

Expected Output

Perspectives from the audience regarding the gaps or opportunities based on their knowledge or experience, and what lies ahead of the post-disaster recovery in Central Sulawesi, for instance in the context of the education infrastructure sector, and how the resilient school-hubs project can potentially fill those gaps and take opportunities to contribute to the recovery progress.


Up to 50 persons from UCL, TDMRC, IRIDES, University of Tadulako, School Representatives, Central Sulawesi Government Officers, Local and International NGOs, and other AIWEST-DR Conference participants.

Program Design

This special session invites the Indonesian Project Manager to Chair the session, to introduce the state-of-the art and the background of the project, and to invite three Postdocs to share the scientific aspects from the three interdisciplinary Work Packages (WPs). The session will end up with discussion with the audience.
