The State Emergency Service of Ukraine, together with the Eastern Europe Foundation, has developed an online educational course “ Civil Security and Emergency Preparedness ” for students in grades 5-9. The main difference of the new course is that it combines elements of the phenomenally popular computer game Minecraft with educational material. As practice shows, this format is more interesting for young listeners and contributes to easier assimilation of information.
The purpose of the goal is to provide theoretical knowledge on the basics of civil protection and practical skills in responding to emergencies.
“Children are vulnerable in emergency situations, not only in times of war, but also in times of peace. They are more likely to be injured or injured, lose relatives, they are more likely to remain lonely and helpless.
Children’s awareness of the risks associated with emergencies is ready to protect their health and life even after the end of hostilities.”

Previously, the Ministry of Education and Science conducted an online lesson on mine safety for schoolchildren – all materials are publicly available, and the Ministry of Education shared recommendations on organizing shelters in schools during training.
According to the most optimistic forecasts, Ukraine will need 5-7 years to clear the entire territory of mines. For demining, Ukrainian rescuers actively involve modern technologies and sapper robots, including the British TALON systems and the famous American Spot robots from Boston Dynamics. The Ukrainian logistics company Novaya Pochta is also developing its own sapper robots for the State Emergency Service . You can also mention the official application for mine safety MineFree (“Without min”) from the State Emergency Service .
