PM4TheWorld Earthquake Relief & PM insights - PMI members earn PDUs


PM4TheWorld's Earthquake Relief event brings aid to Türkiye and Syria. The February earthquakes brought widespread destruction and devastation to the region—one of this century's most deadly disasters. 

Project Management for the World (PM4TheWorld) cooperated with Project Management Institute (PMI) to organize a unique 24-hour event to bring awareness, empathy, and support to the region's people. The event kicked off with a message from PMI CEO, Pierre Le Manhn. We also heard a summary from our Türkiye PMI members of the situation and how local agencies and groups are working to provide aid and support. Hearing the many stories of the long-term impact of basics such as food, shelter, personal safety, and education was harrowing. In addition, the team described the region's survivors who have had to flee the area due to a lack of infrastructure and unsafe conditions, leading to a loss of community and culture for decades to come. 
After Türkiye, speakers from Africa, Europe, the Americas, Oceania, and Asia presented the event as followed the sun around the world. Our global coalition highlighted that we all have a part to play when disaster strikes. 
PM4TheWorld focused on how Project Management and Leaders have unique skills that support aid efforts:
