Today people often do not have any relation to the river they live nearby. Knowledge and comprehension of possible danger and the handling with floods is missing, especially in areas, where a flood haven't occurred for long time. Information and education is necessary to raise flood risk awareness. Depending on target group (e.g. pupil, residents) different approaches were used. The questions of interest depend of the local situation and can bee e.g.:
- What does flood and flood risk mean?
- When does floods occure?
- Which areas are at risk?
- Which safety measures exit?
- How can I protect myself and my property?
