Thank you and goodbye

Watch the video, Ron Mountain thanks you for taking part in the course.
Congratulations on completing this introductory open course on Emergencies and disasters: trends and issues. We hope that you have found our broad exploration of emergencies and disasters to be stimulating. We also hope that it has encouraged you to examine traditional approaches to emergencies and that you have enjoyed investigating social resilience based approaches. Why not join us for the rest of the module? Over the coming weeks we will explore the importance of multi-agency interoperability and integrated emergency management. We will also examine alternative political theory-based understandings of emergencies and disasters and we will consider the implications of these differing views for effective intervention in these events. You may also wish to consider signing up for the full MSC in Emergency management and resilience.
Goodbye and I hope to see you soon.
