During 2019-2020, the Danish Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) acts as the chair of the CBSS Civil Protection Network. The Danish chairmanship priorities for this period include climate change and volunteerism. With these priorities in mind, DEMA hosted a module of the Baltic Excellence Programme (BEP) in Civil Security at its training facility in Tinglev on 18-20 November 2019.
17 participants from 8 countries took part in the course, moderated by the head of DEMA Division for Municipalities and Citizens, Henrik G. Petersen. The course was densely packed with theory, practice and study visits, all planned to explore different perspectives of crisis management in connection to climate change adaptation and engagement with civil society.
