We wanted them to start life with a serious knowledge and serious awareness about disasters, which is the reality of Turkey, from the very first stage. While doing this, we planned a different educational adventure by allowing them to touch the seedlings and soil with their own hands. All of our friends here will know all aspects of disasters from A to Z and will develop themselves to a level that will create a conscious reflex in this direction.”

Stating that individuals who will become scientists of Turkey in the future will be involved in an environment-friendly and nature-friendly project at the very first stage, it will positively affect all their visions. It will show how important it is.”

With the project that will both increase awareness of disaster and bring a new green area to the Capital, practical training will be given especially for children in the park, where the causes of disasters, what needs to be done during the disaster, and the precautions that can be taken before and after the disaster will be explained with the help of various simulators.

The park, which will also be used as a post-disaster gathering area, will also include earthquake and fire extinguishing simulators and a 5-dimensional cinema where earthquake disaster awareness film will be played. The park is expected to be completed in June 2023.
