Our workshops aim to have conversations about earthquake early warning across different communities in Aotearoa New Zealand. We hosted our second community workshop at the Ōrewa Library on 18 November. Seventeen people participated. The workshop provided the participants with the platform to discuss their perceptions of the benefit and their level of trust for an earthquake early warning system.
Similar needs and concerns came up as from our first community workshop. But also new points were raised in context to the community; such accessibility for the less technologically inclined (i.e. elderly). The themes from the concluded and future workshops will be collated and analysed to give an insight into the design of earthquake early warning systems for Aotearoa.
