INVOLVE – Initiate Volunteerism to counter Vulnerability

Content orientation and results:

The INVOLVE research project aims to develop impulses for sustainable disaster services in order to reduce social vulnerability. With the help of qualitatively evaluated interviews with experts and workshops, the conditions for strengthening resilience were specifically examined through disaster services. In cooperation with the project partners involved, three central topics for this question were identified: 

  • the continued existence of voluntary commitments
  • the knowledge of different target groups and their specific needs
  • the networking and cooperation of disaster services with other actors
