The resilience of Urban Built Environment and its users to multi-hazard scenarios in open spaces can be boosted by adoting innovative approches, such as of Virtual Reality combined with Serious Game, as discussed in WP6.
They can be used in citizens and users' training, making end-users and stakeholders aware of risks, multi risks and proper safety procedures. Thus, the project developed a VR-SG prototype for heat wave protection and earthquake response.
