Episode 63: Helping those in harm's way – a GWB story


In 2016, Dr. Ron Harris of Brigham Young University led a Geoscientists Without Borders® team to Java, Indonesia to help prepare the community for the next tsunami. For this special Soundoff episode, we showcase Ron Harris' project in Java through a short, richly produced and narrative-driven story that captures the spirit of GWB.

In Ron's own words, he highlights the moment when his son changed his geoscience career, the simple tool that brought peace to a community, and the power of working together to improve emergency preparedness. This is not just a story about science making a difference, but the role of preparedness in our everyday lives.
